The continental United States (the 48 contiguous states) is divided into 4 time zones:

* Eastern Standard Time (EST), the time zone New York is in, which is 5 hours behind Greenwich mean Time (GMT) means 10 hours 30 minutes with respect to IST
* Central Standard Time (CST), the time zone Chicago is in, which is 6 hours behind Greenwich Meantime (GMT)
means 11 hours 30 minutes wrt IST
* Mountain Standard Time (MST), which is 7 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
means 12 hours thirty mniutes wrt IST .
* Pacific Standard Time (PST), the time zone Los Angeles is in, which is 8 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time

(GMT) which means 13 hours 30 minutes with respect to IST.

Alaska and Hawaii have their own time zones: Alaska Standard Time (AKST) and Hawaii Standard Time (HST)

respectively.

If you live in India and you want to call a friend in United States, you can try calling them between 6:30 PM and 10:30 AM your time. This will be between 7AM - 11PM their time, since United States is 11.5 hours behind India.

If you're available any time, but you want to reach someone in United States at work, you may want to try between 8:30 PM and 4:30 AM your time. This is the best time to reach them from 9AM - 5PM during normal working hours.!!

Us- Sunrise: 5:04 AM
Sunset: 7:52 PM

India Sunrise: 5:42 AM
Sunset: 7:02 PM

USA has five time zones. Eastern time zone is 8:30 hours behind IST when it is in its standard time. In summer they have daylight saving time , now its 9:30 behind IST...:-)
Somebody living in New York is 9:30 hours behind and somebody living in Hawaii is 14:30 hrs behind IST during summer.
