(Did you mean the acronym for Irish Fandom)?

IF (also known as Worlds of If) was a digest-sized prozine launched in 1952 by Quinn Publications.

IF was merged into Galaxy in 1974. A single issue of a semi-professional revival of IF edited by Clifford Hong was published in 1986.

IF was one of the most successful SF magazines of all time, though it never quite made the front rank. It published many award-winning stories and published Larry Niven's first story, "The Coldest Place".
