as a teacher used to say "You gotta "own" the preterite" and make sure you say and hear and write the sound difference between -aran -aron and -ieran -ieron

Not to make matters more complicated, but, how would one say:

"if they had gone to the house"? Would it be:

"si ellos hubieran ido a la casa"?

Thank you for your reply zopilotes, Could we also say my sentence with "hubiesen" instead of "hubieran":

si ellos hubiesen ido a la casa?

Is there any difference in using either of them?

Me parece que hubiesen es ma's literario, y hubieran es ma's conversacional, pero es so'lo lo que he experimentado yo.
