Is 4:00PM stored as a string, NSDate object, etc?

If the time is in hours, so compare three integer values like:
if (x >= a && x <= b)
{
}
If you are talking about NSDate objects, you can use NSCalendar and NSDateComponents to get the hours from the NSDate objects.
You can compare three NSDate objects and this is probably the simplest way:
if (([theDate compare:fromDate] != NSOrderedAscending) && ([theDate compare:toDate] != NSOrderedDescending))
{
  // do something
}

Take a look also here - timeIntervalSinceReferenceDate:
http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Cocoa/Reference/Foundation/Classes/NSDate_Class/Reference/Reference.html
You can convert the NSDate objects to NSTimeInterval and compare them as three float values.
