Say about 2 years worth of flying (to reach the required 1'500 hours), a sim check (normally integrated into the LPC, as it gives the TRI more time for jokes), and some paperwork

And also the slight problem about not being able to get into the left seat of any decent-sized aeroplane without an ATPL.

The principle difference is that CPL/IR does not require specific multi-crew training where the F/ATPL does in the form of an approved MCC course in an approved multi-crew simulator.
