Not quoting mandates, just asking a question and giving my opinion
In Washington and a lot of other places I think it would be hard to schedule a day of IFR instruction without a good chance of being vectored by ATC into the proximity of clouds. If waiting for absolute VFR days here it might take years to get an IFR rating.
