We introduce a new flexible class of continuous distributions via the Hjorth's IDB model. We provide some mathematical properties of the new family. Characterizations based on two truncated moments, conditional expectation as well as in terms of the hazard function are presented. The maximum likelihood method is used for estimating the model parameters. We assess the performance of the maximum likelihood estimators in terms of biases and mean squared errors by means of the simulation study. A new regression model as well as residual analysis are presented. Finally, the usefulness of the family is illustrated by means of four real data sets. The new model provides consistently better fits than other competitive models for these data sets.
