IPHAS is an ongoing H alpha imaging survey of the North Galactic plane. When completed, it is expected to discover several hundred new Galactic planetary nebulae, in addition to a huge number of H alpha emitters.
We present here the project, the methods used to search for compact and extended ionized nebulae, and some preliminary results about the similar to 100 new candidate planetary nebulae identified so far.
