I went to IPhO and I've never heard of that book. Whatever you're doing is probably fine. You have time.

I am also a Gold Winner of Asian Physics Olympiad last year and this year going to take IPhO. Irodov is a Russian Book having main focus on Problems. (All russian prob. books are free at mirtitles.org) The Level of book is quite below the IPhO Probs so students do that book. Come on Art of Problem Solving Community Page there a lot person preparing for that.
