..and of course, with only an IMC rating on my virtual PPL, not a 
full instrument rating, my minima are even higher.

For an ILS approach, the minimum is 500 feet above 
runway level regardless of airport minima, and for an VOR or NDB 
approach it is 600 feet regardless. Sometimes this makes the 
Minimum Descent Height surprisingly high, e.g. at Biggin Hill it 
is 1100 feet on the QNH for an ILS approach to 21.

Fortunately last night I was OK at EGCC. <g>
