Default IMG prep time.. is there a cut off?

As I was just wondering, is there a cut off for IMGs to prepare for step 1. I know some people take just 4-6 months, while others take more than a year. Now if you do take more than a year, how much does it affect your CV? Would it be a major red flag in your application?
