    can in app purchases be PER DEVICE as opposed to per user. So for exmaple user buys remove ads IAP on his device. then he lost his phone and installs app to new phone, he would then have to buy "remove ads" IAP again as its per device (even though he has bought this IAP in the past)

    its ok and straight forward for say buying a consumable health boost but what about something like an IAP to unlock a hidden menu in game?

    That's not very fair though - if a user purchases IAP they should be able to access that from other devices don't you think? Not sure it could be done through Google Play though since the IAP is tied to their user account.

    it requires checking if the item has been purchased on users gmail account but the procedure for doing this is a bit buggy last time i tried it.
