Guitar string always breaking right after restringing it?

It's happened twice already.. I don't know if I'm doin something wrong. I do know nothing is wrong with the guitar, I checked. Maybe its because the string hasn't stretched out yet? If so, how long should I wait before I can play again? Or would I have to keep retuning it back again to standard and not play at all? How long would I have to wait then? Please help me out here haha I'm tired of constantly buying a whole set of strings just to replace 1 broken string.. Oh and the string that's always breaking is the high E. Also what brand should I buy? I play an Acoustic Electric Ibanez AEG10E.

#1) You do not have to buy a complete set of strings to replace one - especially that one - buy an extra single. There also are sets sold that come with an extra 1st string (high E). Rotosound Reds is one.

#2) Brand isn't too important - most high quality strings (plain ones at least) are identical, or nearly so, as long as the gauges are the same. Nickel, stainless, bronze, and all that is only talking about the windings on the wound strings. That being said, I always have favored D'Addario. Do buy high quality strings - no made in China stuff. I made the mistake of stringing a classical guitar with some cheap/Chinese strings once - when I finally forked over the cash for D'Addarios the guitar finally started sounding good - I thought it was a piece of junk when I had the cheap strings on it.

#3) " . . would I have to keep retuning it back again to standard . . ". Are you using a higher than standard tuning? If so, I think that's your problem. Also hope you're using an electronic tuner. I once had a problem breaking the second string on a Gibson Dove acoustic. The problem was that I was over tightening it (had a wound third string and I just couldn't get my head around it - I learned to use the 7th fret harmonic on the low E to try and tune it and that helped some (you can use the 7th fret harmonic on the 5th string to tune the first string, in case you didn't know) but an electronic tuner was the real/permanent solution. The first string is always the last to "settle in". Do not tune it over pitch to stretch/stabilize it. The plain strings always need to be gently stretched (pushed and pulled) several times (retuning between) to get them to settle down - larger ones less than the smaller.

#4) You didn't mention the gauge you're using - .008s are practically unusable (insta-break), .009s more durable, .010s best (IMO) for lead, I like .011s for rhythm. The bigger gauges have much better tone and have a stronger reaction with the pickups - just plain sound better to me.

#5) Is the string breaking in the same place every time, and does that place coincide with a saddle, the nut, or a tuner? There can be a burr, sharp edge, or such, causing a problem at any of those places.

Edit: Grrr!, just noticed you said "acoustic-"electric. Although I was talking electric, what I said should still apply. Too tired to go over it right now. Will check it later for needed revisions/edits. Hey, do you know what kind of pickup that guitar uses? I can look it up later if you don't. That might help with some suggestions, at least whether you should use electric or acoustic strings on it. Basically use acoustic strings if it is a top or pressure sensing pick-up, which it probably is. Acoustic (bronze) strings sound better - another step (or two) up in string gauges would also be called for.
