FAR 61.65(d) – to be eligible for an insrumnt rating you must have:
1. 50 hours of X-country, 10 of which in an airplane;
2. 40 hours of instument time, actual or simulated, of which 15 with an outhorized instructor of which 2 in the preceding 2 months from the exam;
3. a 250 n.m. X-country along air-routes or directed routing by ATC with 3 different approaches at 3 airports;
FAR 61.65(h) – max 10 hours in flight training device.
