Let's say I fly with my safety pilot while under IFR plan (I recently earned my IR). I cancel IFR in air since I can maintain VFR for the last, say, 20nm of the journey (assume there was just some weather necessitating the rating earlier on enroute).
In the VFR phase, I don my hood and conduct 1 or 2 practice instrument approaches at or near destination.
First of all, is this ok? Passenger (since right seat sits VFR only pilot) "evolves" into safety pilot?
Second, if legal, how would one log this flight for purposes of currency?
