“This is not a device that Americans are familiar with,” says Ajai Sahni of the South Asia Counterterrorism Portal.

They say instructions on how to build a pressure cooker bomb can be found on the internet. They also say US Military personnel stationed in Iraq & Afghanistan are all familiar with the bomb.
