Don't know about problems you'd have, but the requirements for an insturment rating under part 61 are as follows.

150 hours total time
50 hours PIC Cross Country (flights >50 nm)
40 hours of insturment time (simulated or actual)

Part 141 is similar, but I think they can shave off the total time and cross country time requirements, each school is differant though.

I am currently in an instrument ground class and we were taught that there was no total time requirement as long as you met the PIC XC and total instrument time requirements. I will take a look in the FAR and see if you do indeed need 150 hours total time.

50 hours XC as PIC
40 hours instrument

No total time requirement.

 Big thumbs up

Under part 61, it's 20 hours dual instrument from a CFII.... the other 20 may be with a safety pilot-great way to split time with one of your buddies and save money.

The biggest changes for you will be little nuances of the US airspace system and such and slightly different terms used by ATC.

The IFR rating is a tremendous challenge whether youre from here or not- good luck to you.

oops, I really should update myself on the changes in FAR's more regularly. Just to cover my own rear, when I went for my insturment rating, they still required 150TT. The others are correct, that must have been removed recently (I hope, I like to think I'm not too far behind the times)

Salim,

When you take your instrument checkride you must have 50 hours of pilot in command cross country time total. This must include 1 instrument cross country, everything else is up to you.
