IB - Order Execution Time

There are no market orders on Globex full stop.

Brokers have to similate them using either a limit or stop limit.

I've heard that IBs software puts in a limit order 20 full points above the ES for a market buy order to virtually guarentee a fill.

Talking about IB further, I find it very tricky to change order quantities fast. Entering the order quantity could be easier. Is there another way of doing it ?
