Īhāmṛga (ईहामृग) refers to one of the “ten kinds of dramatic plays” (daśarūpa), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 20. These different types of dramas are considered to have originated from the various styles (vṛtti), which is discussed in chapter 22 of the same work.

Īhāmṛga (ईहामृग).—One of the ten types of play (nāṭya).—The Īhāmṛga is a play of four Acts in which divine males are implicated in a fight over divine females. It should be a play with well-ordered construction in which the Plot of love is to be based on causing discord among females, carrying them off and oppressing [the enemies], and when persons intent on killing are on the point of starting a fight, the inpending battle should be avoided by some artifice.
The Vyāyoga and the Īhāmṛga are to have three segments (sandhi). There should be no Development (garbha) and Pause (avamarśa—vimarśa) in these two. and the Graceful Style (kaiśikī) also has no place in them.Source: Shodhganga: Elements of Art and Architecture in the Trtiyakhanda of the Visnudharmottarapurana (natya)
Īhāmṛga (ईहामृग) refers to one of the twelve kinds of Rūpaka, which represents the dṛśyakāvya division of Kāvya (“poetry”), according to the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa, an ancient Sanskrit text which (being encyclopedic in nature) deals with a variety of cultural topics such as arts, architecture, music, grammar and astronomy.—According to the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa, īhāmṛga consists of many acts. But the Sāhityadarpaṇa fixes it in four acts. The Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa states that in īhāmṛga a gandharva i.e., a demigod should be the hero and śṛṇgāra should be the predominant sentiment which arises from the unsatisfaction of sexual enjoyment.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (shastra) of performing arts, (natya—theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects.
