I think you should try the ijn line. I cannot give you any statistics since i do not give so much attention to them. I do have I believe more than 3500 battles on BBs, cruisers and dds.
I probably have the same playstyle like yours, and I hated when i see ships standing still and firing. I don't want to insult anyone and maybe a lot of these guys are better and more experienced players than me, but a ship is not a tank... so don't drive her like that.
Anyway jap cruisers are fast, stealthy and maneuverable. Maybe not to durable but enough if you move and avoid enemy fire. My Mogami has detectabillity range at 9.3km and Atago at 9.1km. I do not remember Ibuki's but it is similar.
I would also recommend ijp BBs. From tier V (Kongo) to Tier 8 ( Amagi) are very nice to play. Fast with fire power and maneuverable with exception of Fuso.
Regardless all the above. Just play with anything you have fun.
