    At which f/stop do you have your enlarger lens set? If it is set to a rather open aperture, then closing it down some will get you away from overexposing the paper and consequently developing for too short a time.

    Can you take a crappy digital photo of the two negs side-by-side and post it so we can see what they look like?

    Scanned in.
    The Ilford here looks terrible to me, it doesn't look like this
    in front of me.
    But it works fine when you print ?

    By jove i think i got it lol
    Here are a couple shots made with my Kentmere Film ISO 100
    The same Negative as i was complaining about above.
    Thanks for all the advice and making a test shot before hand is always the way to go.
    I finaly landed on a combination of a 2 sec enlarger exposure at f11 and i spose
    i could have done a 4-5 sec exposure at f16
    Both images were in the developer for a full 60 secs.

    that middle row of negs could possibly be un/under fixed.

    More probably than possibly, IMHO. Get that roll into some fresh fixer as soon as you can for a couple of minutes then re-wash it. Or it could be slightly fogged but I think that a little less likely.

    Your K100 negs look over-developed though that could be an artefact of the scan. There shouldn't really be such a dramatic difference in density between the bright & dark parts. As you can see, they print OK, but it can be difficult to retain both shadow and highlight detail. Try developing the film for about 10% less time next time and be very careful with your temperature control.

    The HP5 shots in the first row are all quite overexposed except for the first one but they'll print OK. It explains why you were initially able to get a print from these but not from the K100 negs; the HP5 ones are so much denser and let less light through in the enlarger.

    2s at f/11 is very fast; I would definitely suggest putting an ND filter of at least 3 stops in your filter drawer and considering using f/16 on the enlarger lens. Otherwise, you will have almost no control over the image density and certainly no ability to do dodging and burning. You want exposures around the 10-30s mark in order to get enough exposure control and have time to dodge/burn. f/16 will soften the appearance of the grain slightly but you won't suffer a problematic loss of resolution.
