I thought the aikikai only recognized aikikai styles. Unless the ranks are issued by the aikikai I don't believe they recognize them. Although I did have one instructor from a non-affiliated group manage to train without any problem. He met one of the shihans with English skills and struck up a relationship.

Your IAF booklet would I think solve the problem.
