No contest, One Gerald Ford class carrier task force could, if it wished, wipe out the whole IJN, especially if special weapons (nuclear devices) are permitted.

But even without special weapons, we're

talking smart bombs, cruise missiles, fast attack submarines, airplanes that go so fast and can attack from such a distance that the IJN might never get a look at them, let alone get a gunlock on them.

The amount of force a fast carrier attack group can project is greater than everything the allies had in England in 1945.
