Working with IIT grads in a software team

I will be joining an organization in India where most of the developers are IIT cs grads.I am assuming they are top of the talent pool.Anybody having experience working with IIT people in U.S and India can share their thoughts?
are IIT people a bit overhyped, or are they as good as people make it out to be?How are people's experiences working with them in a team?

I would say that they are underhyped (if there is such a word..) - you can learn a lot from them from my personal experience.
