    Approx how long would it take me to check-out at IP, drive from IP to Alamo car rental at the airport, drop off the car & take the car rental shuttle to McCarren? This would be around 4-5am on a Sunday morning. I'd like to arrive at McCarren around 4:30-4:45am so would leaving hotel room at 4:00am work?

    I would allow for at least 45 minutes to an hour.

    I don't know, if u are going to cut it close u don't want to be stuck waiting for the elevator for 15 minutes. Anyway i think u figure it out how long it will take for u to get checked out, after that 45 minutes should be more then enough to get get u to the airport.

    My last stay at IP I was able to do what you're trying to do.
    I did it on a Monday morning around 7:30 am

    No, it's never fairly quick. They don't take forever because of lots of traffic, they just take forever.

    I'd allow an hour, but then I hate stressin'... also, do you need to have your car "checked-in" or are you an "elite" member where you just park and go?

    I would give myself no less than 1.30 to check out, drive to the rental center, drop the car, wheel to the bus, transfer to the airport, obtain a boarding pass, clear security and hit the gate. Are you going to arrive about 30 minutes early, most likely. Would you rather be early than one of the crazy idiots who are running to the gate, sweating?
