    Re: query

    Your sentence does not sound natural to me.

    I can't meet you know. We'll have to do it sometime later. (That would be okay.)

    These also sound okay:

    He's arriving sometime later this evening.
    We'll meet sometime later this week.
    The office will open sometime later this year.
    Joe arrived at 7 am, while Peter arrived sometime later.

    Note it's "sometime" not "sometimes."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
