Logbook entry for Instrument Flying

Having completed the PPL syllabus and the required hours of instrument flying, I have added it to the instrument flight column in my logbook. I also have another column that says IFR. The instrument flying was conducted in IMC with an instructor which is all good, but I was wondering if these should be added to the totals at the bottom and followed onto the next pages as my intentions are to get a CPL and IR in the future and I don't know whether these hours would count towards future instrument flying, or just cause issues with my logbook down the road.

Hi! I think that if you are under PPL training, all the flights should be VFR no matter you are practicing homing techniques or radio navigation basics and they do not fall into IR training. There is no legal framework for you to count it as IFR flight time. For that purpose exists the IR course and the hours flown under that training should be noted and count as IFR, even if you are flying VMC and you have filed a VFR Flight Plan but practicing skills of the IR syllabus. Furthermore, when you finish the PPL training, your DTO or ATO must send to your National Authority a certificate with the flight time in detail. Iím sure they wonít risk to place IFR flight time for a PPL course.

If your PPL syllabus required a component of instrument training then YES, you would log that time in IMC, or simulated using foggles ....
