p delta load combination in etabs

i am using the following load combinations for design and analysis of a 10 storied RCC building
1.5 DL
1.5 (DL+LL)
1.2 (DL+LL+EL)
1.5 (DL+EL)
.9 DL+1.5EL
EL means earth quake load and it has combinations in + and - directions as well as in x and y directions

In this case, what should be the iterative p-delta load case when i use
iterative -->based on loads option

RE: p delta load combination in etabs

Follow the stage construction modelling & analyses, as self load in practical does not play part in P-delta.
