Istanbul Airport Transit International to Domestic

We will be flying into IST on May 21 from Milan, Italy on Turkish Air, business. We will have our E-visas. I am American and my wife is Italian. We will be connecting on that day to Izmir. We do not have tickets for the ongoing flight yet and since I am using miles on the flight from Milan I cannot add on the continuing trip to Izmir. I will be purchasing ongoing separate tickets on line. I reviewed the comments about transiting at the Istanbul airport but am unclear about a few things.

In my planning for the ongoing flight, how much time should I allow to transit to my ongoing domestic flight? I am not sure if I purchase the separate ongoing ticket on Turkish Air that I will be allowed to check luggage through? So does it matter what airline the ongoing flight is purchased for?

Walking altogether ca 20 mins., all inside. Passport clearance varies, from 10 to 30 mins. If you fly with an airline to IST which is member of Star Alliance, as TA is, you can check your luggage through.
