    DBA

    FDF
    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.
