IAH customs

How long a layover should I schedule, in Houston, to clear customs and then get my flight to El Paso? I will be arriving probably around 7:00 am on a Friday morning

Are you a US citizen? Do you have global entry? Will you check bags?

I went through the international terminal at IAH on Monday (coming in on BA). With global entry, immigration took about 2 minutes.
It took much longer to walk through the baggage claim. Since I didn't check bags, I didn't have to wait for that.
My next flight was on AA out of Terminal A. I took the underground train over (maybe 5-10 min).

All in, I'd guess I got from plane to my next gate in about 20 min. Would have been faster if I had walked through the tunnel.

The line for non-US citizens was crazy long!
It looked like they had kiosks for US citizens, similar to the global entry kiosks.

Sorry, should have added:

Seems like the darn kiosks make it longer!
