Better penetration damage ability for a slightly reduced fire chance (-2%).

divide the caliber of your guns by 6 (4 if UK or KM). thats how much armour your HE pens normally. now multiply that number by 1.3 and thats what it pens with IFHE skill.

So is it an overkill to take IFHE at tier 1?

 

Most ships dont have armor exceeds 25mm

IFHE increases penetration values for HE shots.  Some guns at certain tiers benefit from this if they have guns that normally don't quite have enough penetrating power for the ships they face.  By adding IFHE, it increases the penetrating distance just enough to get through the armour of the ships they will be facing.  And being HE shots, they won't ricochet when they don't penetrate, so you still get some damage even if they don't penetrate.

Do the math:  Penetrating distance = (shell diameter/6) * 1.3

Then check the armour thickness of the ships you will be facing.  If the Penetrating distance is greater than the armour thickness, you will get a benefit from IFHE.  Don't forget to allow for the longer path through the armour based on shot arc.  If the IFHE penetrating distance isn't larger than  the armour for the ships you will be facing, don't waste 4 points on it.
