Default # of interviews

If an applicant has Step 1 and 2 in the 230s and CS is passed on the first attempt, YOG is < 1 year, green card, 2 months of electives with 3 US LORs and applies to 200 programs, how many IM interviews can be expected??

I'm guessing around 8-12? I checked the NRMP 2013 data and if 10 or more ranks the chances of matching are pretty good.

Sounds like right, you sound like a competitive candidate, and according to what I have heard a competitive IMG candidate should have at least 10% of IVs from the programs that applied, to consider himself/herself successful
