I have issues stopping on ice. I can slowly stop by gliding and then putting one skate sideways in front or behind the other. Does it usually take a while to figure out how to do the double sideways stop? any tips?

Anything specific I should or shouldn't do that seems like common sense for ice hockey that usually doesn't exist in roller?
You might want to see about taking a hockey skating class, if it's available in your area. Something that covers the basics. A lot of things transfer pretty well from inline to ice (backwards skating, crossovers, etc.), but learning how to stop and getting used the idea that it can be okay to slide sideways on your skates can take some time.
