I was just testing this and if I enter the wrong age it tells me, so I correct it and resubmit and I'm banned. So I think there should be an option where the Admin can chose how many times you can fail the age check before an IP ban is invoked.

That somewhat defeats the object - users trying to register would then just keep entering an age until it was accepted.

It is a long time since I looked at this but if I remember correctly you can set the length of the ban (or not even ban them)

Well, it's just that I tested with the wrong age and I got the message saying I was under age as it should be. Then I entered the right age and when I submitted the form I was banned. So I was hoping to offer a way to give a user 2 times only to enter the right age in case of mistakes or if they think it's not necessary and get caught up in a ban. My ban is an hour.

After I found this out I have disabled the extension. Especially after seeing so many people fail the check.

But isn't that the whole point of the extension?
