Regulations for the flight review (14 CFR 61.56) require a minimum of one hour of ground training and one hour of flight training.

While 14 CFR 61.57(d) does not stipulate a minimum time requirement for the IPC, a good rule of thumb is to plan at least 90 minutes of ground time and at least two hours of flight time for a solid evaluation of the pilot’s instrument flying knowledge and skills.

Depending on the pilot’s level of instrument experience and currency, you may want to plan on two or more separate sessions to complete an IPC.

For pilots with little or no recent instrument flying experience, it is a good idea to schedule an initial session in an appropriate aircraft training device (ATD).
