Hi Danielle,
IBMX is poorly soluble in aqueous solution.  Dissolve a stock solution of
0.5 M in DMSO, aliquot and store at -20.  For use, dilute to 1 mM (or
whatever concentration you use) directly into medium.  It helps if the
medium you're adding to is stirring or lightly vortexing as you addthe
IBMX to avoid having it crash out of solution.
