 I've tested this a couple times and using the built-in post type "Post"
 archives then testing against `is_post_type_archive( 'post' )` always
 returns false. It does get caught by the catch-all `is_archive()` on the

 The expected outcome is when viewing Post Archives to be able to use
 `is_post_type_archive( 'post' )` to specifically target Post Archives.

 A quick way to test this is to add this under `wp_head()`

 if( is_post_type_archive( 'post' ) ) {
         die( 'Post Archive' );
 } else if( is_archive() ) {
         die( 'All Archives' );

 Which ''always'' evaluates to false on Post Archives.
