We were on an instrument training flight with an IFR flight plan. On the third approach we were shooting an ILS 35 to ixd. We were vectored on to the final approach and then cleared for the approach. At dusit we called ixd tower. Tower gave us missed approach instructions of right turn to 150 degree heading, climb to 3000' MSL. Also we were cleared for a low approach to runway 35. Normal traffic was using runway 22. We made the low approach to runway 35 at approximately 300' AGL, then started our missed approach. We were just about crossing the runway 22 threshold when tower told us to keep our turn tight because an aircraft was on short final for runway 22. This was the first notice that we had that another aircraft was on approach to the airport. Because we were in a right turn, I could not see out the left and the student was under the hood when alerted to the traffic and the possible conflict. We made our turn tight and increased our climb rate, but it really was too late to do much else. I feel that the tower controller failed to give us notice of a possible conflict until it was to late. Because of the missed approach instructions, I could not see the aircraft on final for runway 22 and do not know how close we really did come. The other aircraft was told of our position when we were crossing the 22 threshold and he did see us.

Title: SMA MAKING RIGHT TURN MISSED APCH CAME IN CLOSE PROX TO ANOTHER ACFT LNDG ON A CROSSING RWY.
Narrative: WE WERE ON AN INSTRUMENT TRNING FLT WITH AN IFR FLT PLAN. ON THE THIRD APCH WE WERE SHOOTING AN ILS 35 TO IXD. WE WERE VECTORED ON TO THE FINAL APCH AND THEN CLRED FOR THE APCH. AT DUSIT WE CALLED IXD TWR. TWR GAVE US MISSED APCH INSTRUCTIONS OF RIGHT TURN TO 150 DEG HDG, CLB TO 3000' MSL. ALSO WE WERE CLRED FOR A LOW APCH TO RWY 35. NORMAL TFC WAS USING RWY 22. WE MADE THE LOW APCH TO RWY 35 AT APPROX 300' AGL, THEN STARTED OUR MISSED APCH. WE WERE JUST ABOUT XING THE RWY 22 THRESHOLD WHEN TWR TOLD US TO KEEP OUR TURN TIGHT BECAUSE AN ACFT WAS ON SHORT FINAL FOR RWY 22. THIS WAS THE FIRST NOTICE THAT WE HAD THAT ANOTHER ACFT WAS ON APCH TO THE ARPT. BECAUSE WE WERE IN A RIGHT TURN, I COULD NOT SEE OUT THE LEFT AND THE STUDENT WAS UNDER THE HOOD WHEN ALERTED TO THE TFC AND THE POSSIBLE CONFLICT. WE MADE OUR TURN TIGHT AND INCREASED OUR CLB RATE, BUT IT REALLY WAS TOO LATE TO DO MUCH ELSE. I FEEL THAT THE TWR CTLR FAILED TO GIVE US NOTICE OF A POSSIBLE CONFLICT UNTIL IT WAS TO LATE. BECAUSE OF THE MISSED APCH INSTRUCTIONS, I COULD NOT SEE THE ACFT ON FINAL FOR RWY 22 AND DO NOT KNOW HOW CLOSE WE REALLY DID COME. THE OTHER ACFT WAS TOLD OF OUR POS WHEN WE WERE XING THE 22 THRESHOLD AND HE DID SEE US.
