This paper discusses entropy estimations for two-parameter inverse Weibull distributions under adaptive type-II progressive hybrid censoring schemes. Estimations of entropy derived by maximum likelihood estimation method and Bayes estimation method are both considered. Different Bayes estimators using squared loss function, Linex loss function, general entropy loss function, and balanced loss function are derived. Numerical results are derived by Lindley's approximation method. Especially, the
