How hard is it for an America going thru passport control and customs in London?

As long as your white no longer then 3 minutes

Can't be too bad. I've been to London, through Heathrow, about a dozen times. I don't remember anything unpleasant about going through customs and passports there. So it must have at least been within normal tolerances.
All my visits were vacations of ten days or less. As some have suggested, if you're going to stay longer you might check visa requirements. But for the short stays, no visas are required from Americans.

Easier than when we visit the US..

I don't know how you want to measure this. People with the correct documentation and an agreeable manner have no special difficulties at all. People without an address or return ticket may expect to be asked a few more questions, and if you're aggressive or unpleasant you may be given a harder time. But there is nothing specially hard for Americans going through Passport control and Customs that isn't the same for people of other nationalities.

It is not hard if you have a return ticket.

The biggest problem is that Heathrow is the size of many small cities. Pay attention.....

It's not hard; and it's probably not as painful as a British person entering the US

Not difficult if your stay in the U.K. is for less than 6 months. If you are staying longer or have a criminal record you will require a visa. You need also be in possession of a return ticket to te U.S. and be able to demonstrate you have enough funds for your stay - cash, credit cards etc

Easy. Unless you are one of the freaks who has been banned. There are only a few of those.

Why would it be hard? Just need the proper documents and you'll go through with out a hitch.
