Assuming since you mentioned IBC you are not in Florida or in an area that requires wind-borne debris protection of your windows/storefronts, such as rated glazing or storm shudders?
In any case, openings are permanent openings in a building that will not be covered by a permanent structure or cladding that will allow wind to enter during a storm. So doors, windows, etc. are not openings. A garage door that will not have a roll down door but always remain open would be an opening, like at a car wash or maybe a air plane hangar. A large picnic pavilion that you may see at a fairgrounds or something like that, those sometimes have three walls and not an end wall. This would be partially enclosed, and is your worse case scenario or all types of buildings.
