I know this question gets asked all of the time, but I have to brew something with a 4 week deadline. I'd like to stay away from wheat beers, so I will probably brew an English bitter or an APA in the 1.040 to 1.050 range. Which type of yeast would be best suited for this kind of turnaround. I have access to Wyeast.

if you make a gigantic starter of the ESB yeast, I think you will do fine. I cant remember the number, but that one flocculates very well.

The yeast Jared is referring to is Wyeast 1968. It is highly flocculent, which makes it popular for cask ales and other quickly maturing beers.
