Do any of you know for sure whether this one counts toward. 5/24?
Yes it will count toward 5/24. You will not be rejected by it if you are over 5/24 though.
I have the card and recommend it. The intro bonus isn't great but the annual free night for $49 is very good value.
This is an old link but I think you can still get 80K points by calling in but not the $50 offer anymore. Flyertalk would have more info on that.

I had the Chase IHG card and cancelled it when the annual fee was due. Do you know how soon I could re-apply for it?
Right now I have over 100k IHG points and I am slowly draining them by using 15k points for 1-night stays at the Prague airport for the convenience of getting the next day morning flight.
I think the IHG card is def. worth keeping.
Annual fee is only $49/month.
Last year I stayed at the London Intercontinental free.
This year I am staying in a similar very expensive property free in Dublin.
IMHO, it is the best of the hotel cards to keep, given the low annual fee and ease of finding rooms.
When I was canceling IHG I thought it was not worth the annual fee. Ironically, as soon as I cancelled it, I started using IHG quite actively. I hope I could get it again in a couple years.
