You should accurately log the flight in your personal log as both cross-country, and having a portion of simulated instrument time (clearly it can't all be simulated instrument time.)
However you cannot take credit for the hours towards both the instrument time, and cross-country time experience requirements of the CPL: you can count the hood time on a cross-country as EITHER hood time OR cross-country time, but not both.
Ensign Ricky: Aw, crap.
PF is correct, that in terms of the cross country dual cross country time, the 20 hours of instrument is above and beyond what is counted for the cross country time.(I) 5 hours night, including a minimum of 2 hours of cross-country flight time;
(II) 5 hours cross-country, which may include the cross-country experience stated in subclause (I); and
(III) 20 hours of instrument flight time in addition to the experience stated in subclauses (I) and (II). A maximum 10 hours of the 20 hours may be conducted on an approved aeroplane simulator or synthetic flight training device.
