Would of thought it will do the same job. also, are you going to be using it diluted? It may be better to as undiluted it may be too strong.

Yeah, same job, but not really as well. It's great for removing polishing oils and the likes, but it doesn't really shift embedded dirt.

As for dilution, I use it neat to remove sealants, and use it normally at 50% strength. I've read that people use it down to 10%.

IPA is good at removing oils and grease as stated but it evaporates too quick to give real "cleaning" ability. Something like Werkstat prime acrylic/strong would deep clean the paint beyond what IPA can do but if you've already polished then IPA would be fine to prep for LSP.
