But this Space.com item :

https://www.space.com/spacex-crew-dragon-launch-abort-test-critical-milestone.html

says the IFA will be before the Falcon 9 engines shutdown:

"During Saturday's test, that will happen about 90 seconds after liftoff, after which the Falcon 9's first stage engines will shut down. "

i.e. the opposite of this Registem article which says the early engine shutdown will trigger the IFA.

I'm guessig space.com is the right one.
