Very modern newly built structure with passport control relatively smooth (I expected tighter go-through experience). If you think of your immigration check at JFK going through passport check at IKA is a walk in the park. I had carryon luggage so I rushed through exit with one more X Ray control to go. Nothing major but of course avoid to bring in alcohol. Departure was early in the morning. Very congested security check before you check in: you have to squeeze all your luggage and metal stuff under the x ray and then your physical check is very slow. If you fly economy not much to do in the airport. Couple of good coffee shops with plenty of tables and seats few duty free shops. There is one nice handicraft shop tough. Careful about public announcements that are delayed. Flights were announced departing when I had seen them happily taking off 10-15 minutes earlier. Smoking area is below the main floor with very nice view of the apron. No internet available in the public space. Once you move to your departing gate there is another security control. The boarding area is okay with nice reclined seats overlooking the runway and one small coffee shop. Overall a nice airport with huge room for improvement given the beautiful building and the fair share of international traffic.
