    Well the areas affected included: Windward Islands (especially Grenada), Venezuela, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Cuba, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Texas and most of the eastern United States. I hope that answers your question.

    This is detailed in my hub, where there is a map also:

    Tracking Hurricane Ivan began with a tropical depression nine on the second of September, having been formed from a large tropical wave to the southwest of Cape Verde. The system moved west, gradually strengthening into Tropical Storm Ivan by September 3rd, and reaching hurricane intensity as of September 5th about one thousand one hundred fifty miles east of Tobago. That same day, Hurricane Ivan would intensify into a category 3 hurricane.

    From the National Hurricane Center’s further tracking, Hurricane Ivan weakened somewhat while moving west, passing over Grenada on September 7th and battering the Windward Islands while entering the Caribbean Sea. Ivan then rebuilt its strength and became a category 5 hurricane north of the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba on September 9th. Ivan then approached Jamaica on September tenth, battering the island with hurricane force winds for several hours.

    Ivan then continued north as a category 5 hurricane, turning west on September 13th and affecting the western tip of Cuba and passing through the Gulf of Mexico while weakening to a category 4 hurricane.

    Ivan saw considerable weakening before making landfall in the US in Gulf Shores, Alabama on September 16th as a category 3 hurricane, passing through Florida on September 20th, and finally dissolving September 24th over Texas, after a September 23rd landfall in Cameron, Louisiana.
