From 1992 to 2003, this logo was used simultaneously with the next, more simplistic logo. In 2003, it was gradually phased out in favor of the next logo. It is still used at a few scant locations.

Similar to the previous logo, except the "International House of Pancakes" wordmark was simply replaced with the acronym "IHOP". This logo would go on to be the longest-running used for the company, It lasted for 21 years. It is still used at some locations.

In June 2015, IHOP changed its logo for the first time in 21 years, with a logo containing a curve under the 1994 wordmark resembling a smile (the "O" and "P" are the eyes while the half of "P" serves as the nose). This change was rumored to be made in order to make IHOP look "happier", as if the former was "frowning" (although ads in the "Come Hungry, Leave Happy" campaign had the banner curving upwards as if it was smiling). Also, the word "Restaurant" was dropped from the logo.




In 2018, the P in the logo was turned upside down to look like a B to promote their burgers. A lot of people took this change seriously, thinking it was real, but it returned to its usual look after a short time.
