This crops up regularly.

Do not confuse flight under Instrument Flight Rules (sic. IFR) with flight under Instrument Met. Conditions (sic. IMC) If you look at the conditions for logging "instrument time" at the beginning of your CAA logbook it says this is time when you manipulate the controls solely without outside reference ie. when you are in cloud.

It doesn`t say much about your experience if you are to log visual time as instrument time whilst you flog about VMC in controlled airspace!!

It is only really relevant whilst under training to fly on instruments hence the IF hours requirements for licence upgrades.
