Hi! I modeled my building with OpenStudio. I'm doing simulations with jeplus using the in.idf("1-ModelToIdf-0" folder) created by OpenStudio. Reading this question I started to question what is the diference between the in.idf and the out.idf because when I use the in.idf in jeplus I don´t observe any strange results. Can you tell me what is the correct *.idf file to use to run simulations in jeplus? Thank you

You should use in.idf, as it is the one that enerpyplus executable uses by default. The "out.idf" is probably an intermediate file generated by EP-Macro.
