>>My understanding from Vanguard, where I have my inherited IRA, is that you CAN mix and match. The RMD is a required minimum, but there is no reason why you cannot take out more money in a given year if you have to (i.e. cash strapped). ...

You are correct. I'm not sure what I was trying to say in my earlier post. The "mix and match" problem arises if you miss an MRD distribution. Then you are forced to take the 5 year payout. As long as you take AT LEAST the MRD, you can take as much as you want in any given year.
