Picking up SFV + ibuki for the first time. dont know what advice is relevant due to patches. whats the BnB punishes right now?

in general i want to start looking for advice but not sure whats going to be outdated or not. seems kinda laborious comparing everything against patch changes 2, 3, 3.5 etc.
basically anything you can tell me that will shorten my learning curve will be of help. thx.
