The conditional construction does not normally use will or would in if-clauses.

EXCEPTION: If will or would express willingness [mark politeness], as in requests, they can be used in if-clauses.

e.g. If you will come this way, the manager will see you now. I would [should] be grateful if you would [could] give me a little help.
