It is good to practice some IFR though.

I spent too much time staring at the instruments when I should have been looking outside.

This is a very big danger for new pilots (especially those at ab initio stage). As useful as flight simulator software is, this propensity for students to become focussed on instruments when flying a real aircraft, is something many instructors notice with students who have extensive 'experience' using software such as FS2004.

If you want to get anywhere close to real flight dynamics you have to use x-plane.
After I started flying (in an actual plane) FS became a toy. I've been playing with x-plane and its much better (not perfect though). Also, as an aero-engineer I appreciate the appraoch x-plane takes to mirror the physics of real-world flight.
