In this paper, we introduced the Inverted Power Rama distribution as an extension of the Inverted Rama distribution. This new distribution is capable of modeling real life data with upside down bathtub shape and heavy tails. Mathematical and statistical characteristics such as the quantile function, mode, moments and moment generating function, entropy measure, stochastic ordering and distribution of order statistics have been derived. Furthermore, reliability measures like survival function,

To demonstrate the applicability of the distribution, a numerical example was given. Based on the results, the proposed distribution performed better than the competing distributions.
