We're flying from AMS to HNL (connection in IAH and LAX) all on 1 united airlines ticket.

We have a connection of 1 hr 40 mn at IAH. Is that enough time to catch our next flight to LAX ?

Do we need to recheck our bags ?
AMS IAH - Flight:UA21
IAH LAX - Flight: UA1257
Yes, in Houston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
