    Let me know if you will come

    Can I use "will" after "if" in this sentence:

    Let me know if you will come.

    Does "if" mean "whether" here? Like in:
    I doubt if he will come.

    Or is it a conditional and I can't use "will" after "if", like in:
    Tell him about the party if you meet him.

    But beware. It doesn't mean 'Tell me when you arrive'. (That is, some students may be tempted to use it wrongly.)
