It sounds like you are responding well to the IPL treatment. Do not pick at the "coffee ground" spots, instead allow them to flake off over the next 1-2 weeks. It is also important to minimize your sun exposure as well.
Yes this is normal. Coffee ground spots means that you have had a good result from this treatment. Allow the them to break up on their own and do not scrub or pick at them.
Coffee ground spots mean that your brown spots were successfully treated. Wash gently, use moisturizers, do not pick and use sun protection. You should have a good result.
