Very excited about the launch of drafts, congrats on the deployment.

Thanks! We are too. Already one draft created by an IP has already been successfully published: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:John_Wainwright_Evans

For some reason indexing of new drafts in the internal search seems to be lagging (while new pages created in the main namespace show up almost immediately), any thoughts on why this would happen?

We think this may be our slow non-Cirrus search on English Wikipedia. I'll make sure a bug gets filed, if it hasn't already.
