‎The combination of generalization Type-I hybrid censoring and generalization Type-II hybrid censoring schemes create a new censoring called a unified hybrid censoring scheme‎. ‎Therefore‎, ‎in this study‎, ‎the E-Bayesian estimation of parameters of the inverse Weibull distribution is obtained under the unified hybrid censoring scheme‎, ‎and the efficiency of the proposed method was compared with the Bayesian estimator using Monte Carlo simulation and a real data set‎.
