ample time vs ample enough time

By saying that you have "ample time," you are telling someone that you have all of the time you need to do something. You could have "ample time" (or "enough time"), but "ample enough time" is redundant.

ample time

This is correct

Saying that you have "ample time" to do something means that you have the time needed to finish that task.

Sometimes, it means that you have enough time to finish it.

In other situations, people use the phrase "ample time" to suggest that you have some extra time, too.

Some examples from our editors:

I gave you three weeks to research and compose the report, so you have had ample time to complete it.
The exam period will be three hours long, so you should have ample time to address each essay question.
If we get to the stadium an hour before the match, we should have ample time to park, have a few beers, and find our seats before kickoff.

ample enough time

This is not correct. Don't use this phrase.

"Ample" and "enough" are too close in meaning.

"Enough time" means you have sufficient time to complete a task.

"Ample time" means you have sufficient time to complete that task, and you might possibly have some extra time to do it.

"Ample enough time" is redundant. Use "ample time" or "enough time" instead.
