People log IF hours in all different ways....I have known guys to have 2000 hours TT with 1900 hours IF time because they flew on an IF flight plan.

Be honest with yourself....remember you might apply for a job where strict IF flying is needed because of terrain and weather and if you have been exaggerating your instrument time and will probably kill yourself and others.

Most contract pilots only logged the approach and landing time or when they actually polled themselves in IF conditions.(i think we logged 0.2 for the approach).

By the time you get into an airline...IF time becomes irrelevant.....because then it becomes system management time.
