A two parameter generalization of the Inverse Rayleigh distribution capable of modeling bathtub hazard rate function is defined and studied with application to reliability data. A comprehensive account of the mathematical properties of the modified Inverse Rayleigh distribution including estimation and simulation with its reliability behavior are discussed. An application is presented to illustrate the proposed distribution.
