Cirrus pilot causes chaos in pattern

This is an excerpt from a report made to the Aviation Safety Reporting System. The narrative is written by the pilot, rather than FAA or NTSB officials. To maintain anonymity, many details, such as aircraft model or airport, are often scrubbed from the reports.

The event happened during a practice flight in my aircraft.

The purpose of the flight was to practice some checklist items subsequent to me finishing my instrument rating and to help my instructor maintain instrument currency.

The flight took place with my instructor (who at the time was not formally providing instruction) flying using a view limiting device from the right seat and me sitting in the left seat acting as safety pilot and pilot monitoring.

We were practicing the ILS 32 approach to Winchester Regional Airport (KOKV) in Virginia in VMC conditions.
