I was wondering how many users does my IAP-325 support?
Is it also possible to switch from AP-325 to IAP-325 or is it just possible to switch from IAP to AP but not the other way around?

the AP can support up to 255 devices per radio however Aruba VRD documents recommend approx 40 to 60 devices. It will depend on your precise use case. have a look on airheads for VRD (validated reference design) for an appropriate one.
a IAP can be turned into a AP but an AP cannot be turned into a IAP.
if your access point started out in life as a IAP, converted to a AP, then it can revert to being a IAP in future.

If Aruba VRD documents recommend approx 40 to 60 devices per AP and I have an AP with 2 SSIDs and I expect 50 devices in each SSID, does that mean that I might better place other AP? Or the Aruba recommendation is devices per SSID? I would like to read that document, what's the exact name of that VRD?

It depends on the AP. Some APs like the 225s, 325s, and 335s are specifically for high user capacity. The other APs can handle the large volume of traffic but not more than 30 users in a high capcity situation is recommended.
