That's just using one filter, the range of adjustments becomes even greater when you change filters too.
I see you avoided the more common IR looks (desaturated & channel swapped). It certainly adds a lot to the creative controls. I'm a big fan too.

I am more in favor of high contrast black and white IR images...

My favorites are usually "you've landed on an alien planet" but I like IR B&W also.

None of these shots were with e-mount bodies but my converted A7ii should be able to replicate all apart from the last one.

My opinion..... you can turn any good IR photo into B&W. It's all about your imagination and color.
