pojo92 welcome to Harris game site, and Krieghund summed it up with the quick version (we're assuming your playing the 1st edition Out Of Book rules). There is a new 2nd edition game and rule set now that you might want to take a look at (see below).
In 1st edition Out Of Book (OOB) game rules that came out in 2009 (Pac), and 2010 (Europe) the rules that combine to make the global game (rules at the end of the Europe rule book page 35) say the US gets a total 30 IPC bonus if at war, and has control of East US, Central US, and West US (you would not get the 40 listed for the Pac side).
In the 2nd edition game that just came out this past summer/fall the US war bonus is broken up into several NO's. It gets only 10 IPC for continental US (E US, C US & W US), and 5 IPCs for various other possessions and goals. This new rule set that comes with the 2nd edition game is based on a long process (Alpha rules) where the games creator (Larry Harris) with the help of the gaming community made many changes to the OOB rules. The new rule set is available as a free down load (see below).
If you have the first edition game/map(s), I would suggest taking a look at the 2nd edition rules and set-up (many things have changed). There were no major changes to the map (only minor border corrections), so game play would be fine.
Some of the high lights or changes:
*Strategic Bombing Raids (SBR)
Have fun regardless of which game/rules you play WB
Here is the page/link to down load any of the axis & allies game rules, just scroll to the one you want. (*note the 2nd edition rule book for Europe is on the same line as the revised rule packet).
Just run your mouse over the link(s) below, and it will allow you to click it.
You can get the latest set up on the first page of this thread, just scroll down to see the Alpha+3 set up. Just subtract one UK inf from Egypt.

Here is another link to the newest set up, (used with 2nd edition rules), but you will need to register at AA.org to down load it though. It is another great site for AA enthusiasts (if your not already on).
