|Assunto:||Whether X If|
My own rule of thumb is to replace "quer você _(verbo) _ ou não" for "whether"
He's coming to the party, "whether" you like it or not.
(Ele virá para à festa, quer você goste ou não.)
If you will try to use IF in the sentence above it doesn't sound good.
IF is more informal.
There's a lot more information on WHETHER x IF
I'd suggest you do a lot of reading and just train your ear to what sounds better for you and see WHETHER you think you should use WHETHER or IF.
For more information check
And I am sure that many more people will post their views on the topic, keep checking your topic back, the discussions are very insightful on EMB.
