Migrating from Aruba Instant to controller based solution

We have a site that is using Aruba Instant with four AP's.  When I click on one of the AP's, it indicates the Type is 215.  I'm a bit fuzzy on the difference between IAP's and normal ones.  

Our goal is to migrate the existing AP's on to a 7205 series controller.  To do this it looks like I can use the convert function, but wanted to check to make sure that the existing AP's had that capability.  Does anyone have a document I can review on the subject, or have experience doing what I'm attempting to?

Thanks for any help!
