Ok. Armour overmatching .... In simple terms WG use a calculation to determine what thickness of armour your guns can penetrate. For AP shells take the caliber of your guns in mm and divide by 14.3. For HE shells you divide by 6, unless you are a boat that already gets quarter pen, these ships you divide by 4 to get the pen value. German cruisers for example. IFHE adds 30% to the amount of armour a HE shell can penetrate. However because of the general armour schemes WG apply using IFHE on 203 mm guns has virtually no benefit,  

However on some ships IFHE is useful not for it's effect on your main guns, but on your secondaries.

 

This thread should help explain it more ... https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/112819-ifhe-and-you-how-it-works-and-what-its-good-for/

Dear OP,

 

When you see the captain skill looks like unavailable for the current ship,

It does not mean that you cannot pick it, It usually means that ship will not profit from that skill.

That is not a perfect system,

for example, IFHE skill looks useless for my GK captain, but actually It makes a lot of difference for secondary builds.

 

So for your question,

Yes any captain can get IFHE (any skill for that matter) in any ship.

Will the ship profit from that skill? It depends...

Gentelmen,

This is newcomer's section for questions.

while we were blaming people for not learning the game over thousands of battles,

Posting nonsense here because we think question is silly does contradict our claims on the other side.

So, I've cleaned up a little bit. Please give the benefit of the doubt!
