I'm currently using Google Compute to host my website.
If I change the IP address under Google Cloud DNS will that change the instance instantly?

Or will it be delayed, like with nameserver propagation?
I have created a "clone", using a Snapshot, with the new machine specifications and hard disk size I am looking for.
- I have checked my FTP and it works - all my php files etc are there.
- I have checked my phpmyadmin and it is working and all tables are intact.
However, when I access the ip address in my browser it does not load the page. Does this simply mean I need to update my DNS IP Address to point to the new instance? Will this switchover be instant?
I'm trying to figure out really if the DNS IP address is something I can switch at a second's notice or if I play with it I could be disrupting my pathroute for days...
