3 hrs is the typical amount of time we suggest for this sort of experience.

You should be fine. IF the first flight is late for some reason and you miss your 2nd flight then United will put you on the next available one at no extra charge.

i wouldn't worry about this connection.

So stressed you posted this 3 times! (I reported the duplicates for TA Admin to remove, but for future reference, you can remove inadvertent posts yourself by going to "Report inappropriate content" and selecting delete my post or equivalent - this works for your own posts, not someone else's).

Your connection from international to domestic flight at LAX means that after immigration, you have to collect luggage, go through customs and security, and hand it back in again, but 3 hours should be fine for this, I believe 2 hrs is the minimum.
