Connection time

I am arriving at Dullus on UA from Jacksonville and connecting with a UA international flight to Brussels. Will I have to process through an international checkin inspection and is 1 hr. 10 min. enough time? Do all international flight depart from an international terminal?

Yup, the spammers will have a field day extracting your address. Definitely click the remove post flag and start again without the personal details.

To answer your question, though, United will check your bags all the way through to your final destination from JAX, and give you boarding passes for both flights. There is no Int'l terminal at IAD, but JAX is usually served by United Express. Those flights usually arrive at the A gates, while heavies to Europe depart from the C & D gates. For C, you take the aerotrain subway. For D, you take a mobile lounge (glorified bus). A to C takes about 10 minutes depending on your walking speed. A to D is about 15.

They will start to board your int'l flight about 55 minutes prior to departure, and close the door 10 to 15 minutes prior. So you have a roughly 45 minute cushion. It is a "legal" connection under UA's rules, but not one I'd book given the limited number of ways to get to Brussels that day if you mis-connect (through LHR and FRA are your only alternatives).
