Hello sankar and welcome to the forums,

At the briefest, IPL is when the operating system is loaded.

This is similar to when you power up a pc - just a different operating system.

See Chapter 16.8 Initializing the system in the document Introduction to the New Mainframe: z/OS Basics.

Initial Program Load -- load the operating system and optional subsystems and start the system. (same thing as booting a PC, just more complicated).
