Melissa Clark has 2 that are worth a look.  See if your library has them so you can see what you think.  The Kindle versions of both have been available at bargain prices.

Dinner in an Instant: 75 Modern Recipes for Your Pressure Cooker, Multicooker, and Instant Pot® : A Cookbook

Comfort in an Instant: 75 Comfort Food Recipes for Your Pressure Cooker, Multicooker, and Instant Pot®: A Cookbook

 

If enjoy Indian cuisine, you might consider Indian Instant Pot® Cookbook: Traditional Indian Dishes Made Easy and Fast by Urvashi Pitre.  Indian friends taught me how to cook their recipes and all of them regularly used a pressure cooker so it's a natural fit.  You can check out her website to see if you like her style

I've come across this:

https://www.motherjones.com/food/2018/12/the-best-cookbooks-and-instant-pot-guides-melissa-clark-superiority-burger/

which lists Melissa Clark, of course.

 

Also

Essential Indian Instant Pot, by Archana Mundhe

Power Plates: 100 Nutritionally Balanced, One-Dish Vegan Meals, by Gena Hamshaw

Solo: A Modern Cookbook for a Party of One, by Anita Lo

Superiority Burger Cookbook: The Vegetarian Hamburger Is Now Delicious, by Brooks Headley

A Burger to Believe In, by Chris Kronner

 

Have any experience with these books?

I borrowed Solo from the library. It has some good ideas but wasn’t a must have for me. I've got a ton of cookbooks and have been encouraged by other eG members to figure out how to scale recipes to suit.  I can’t say I remember it being Instant Pot centric in any way.

Solo is not an IP cookbook. That said, I've enjoyed using it on the nights I'm cooking for one.

Solo was a huge disappointment for me. Perhaps it was overhyped. Perhaps I was expecting more because I am a great admirer of Anita Lo. It just didn’t do it for me.

I now have both Melissa Clark books mentioned above by @blue_dolphin: 75 Modern Recipes for the IP and 75 Comfort Recipes for the IP, both of which I find quite useful.

 

Also Instant Pot Fast and Easy : 100 Simple and Delicious Recipes for Your Instant Pot by Urvashi Pitre is a "convenient" simplification of international recipes (India, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China, Jamaica, Mexico, etc.) which illustrate uses of the Instant Pot. Originally I got it from the library but liked it so much, I now have a copy. 😀
