BAI

1ST LETTER SUM: 4+6+6+2 = 18
2ND LETTER SUM: 2+6+6+1 = 15
This combination is acceptable.

Do not know what IP means or how implemented.
However, a way to solve:
Get ALL combinations of the 8 words taken 4 at a time
& calculate the sum of the 1st letters & 2nd letters:
if the constraint is not met, discard that set.

Of the sets remaining
determine the sum of the 3rd letter and choose the maximum
value.
