IGH hubs need to have the bearings adjusted the same as basic cup/cone hubs. On an IGH this is almost always done from the left, but refer to the manual before starting because the right side needs to be set to a correct position first (if the hub is new and untouched, this should be OK).
If the right side is set to spec, you adjust the left to remove all play. If you're new to this, read your hub's manual first, or find a tutorial on hub bearing adjustment.
