I searched a good few hours for the anwser but couldn't find one. Does the eat period need to start and end the say time everyday or can it change based how long you are fasting? Example I stop eating at 7pm, I go to sleep wake up workout at 10:30 am eat at 1pm and stop at 5pm following morning eat at 8 am stop eating at 4pm. Next day workout day no food until 1pm after workout. Sorry if it doesn't make sense I'm just trying to figure it out.

It should be at the same time each day if you want to reap the benfit of appetite control - since the hormone ghrelin which regulates your appetite in relation to the time of day will become entrained to the new meal pattern.
If you are typically not hungry in the morning and it's not inconvenient for you to eat in the designated 8 hour window then IF might work for you. Otherwise, there is no magic about it that makes it worth messing up your schedule.
