I have just wrote "By the way if you get interested in Hourly History from this review, it couldn't be better." However thereafter I found out "couldn't be better" seems always to be individual.

The combination of "if" and "couldn't be better" in the same sentence is very rare. I found this one online:

The tale of Romeoville couldn't be better if the Bard wrote it himself.

You are using the if-clause a little differently in your sentence, and it doesn't work so well. If I were you, I'd forget about trying to mix and if-clause with the expression "couldn't be better".

Thank you. "coundn't be better" seems to be hypothetical. I believe that this is a special usage of hypothetical mood, incompatible with if clause.

Try "so much the better": "By the way if you get interested in Hourly History from this review, so much the better."

Oh! I made a stupid tense error again.
