Congratulations!! Use it often, I had a 30 yr hiatus from instrument flight. A year after my RV7 first flight got re-training and current. Going from steam gauges to EFIS and the responsive RV was quite the ride in the first sessions. It made me a better pilot.

Thanks for the love everyone, I think I am more happy to get that rating than even my PPL. Something about IFR procedures I just really enjoy. Keep after it you guys still working on one!

We talked briefly on climb gradients but never got too into the RV and how it would meet them. Although I looked back through all my saved data on Savvy and compiled quite the spread sheet so I was ready! There were a few areas on the spreadsheet that didn't have a confirmed number but they would be fringe cases and I would just use the nearest worse performance number to ensure it would meet a gradient.

Got my PPL in 1988, stopped flying in 1992. Back to flying in 2017, bought my RV9A in 2018, hope to complete my IFR in it this year

You can do it! I too stopped flying for many years. Just get up there and get it done! Haha. It didn’t take long to get past the RV IFR nuances. Mainly learning when to slow down because if you blast into an approach too fast you have a heck of a time. That ticket has already come in handy on some cross countries.

Outstanding work!

(I'm doing mine at the moment, and have fresh eyes on what a significant challenge this is. Hopefully I'll be making a similar post in a few months!)
