Is an IPC dual given?
The IPC is not exactly worded that way. The proficiency check could be “OK, prove to me you don’t need any instruction, and you pass the check”, and there would be no technical reason to log it as dual, but that is up to you. It is common practice to log any instruction, IPC, aircraft checkout, etc., as dual.

Can a pilot live anywhere?
