    Re: if and when

    When - whatever is being discussed is definitely going to happen
    If and when - whatever is being discussed may not actually happen

    When you have your annual review, you can talk about new responsibilities. -- The review is a sure thing
    If and when you are promoted, your responsibilities will increase. -- The promotion is not a sure thing
