In response to your question, ILR is usually lost if you do not travel in the last 2 years unless there are exceptional circumstances. You may need to re-apply or contact with authority but this is an easy application. To re-instate your indefinite leave to remain, you need to set out grounds as to why you have been away from the UK as well as specified evidence.

The main thing to keep in mind is that it is Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). The guess is that you are resident in the UK. While there is the rule that if you are out of the country for more than 2 years you can lose your Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), that’s not the only way to lose it. If you reach in the UK and the border agent is not satisfied that you are resident, he can stamp you in as a visitor and withdraw your Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). They know your comings and goings. It’s on your record list. The position is if the UK is not your home, and it’s quite likely that will be noticed, there’s no reason for them to maintain your Indefinite Leave to Remain status.
Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) is not actually a permanent residence. It’s close, but can be revoked. If you want permanent access to the UK you have to naturalize. Even then, as part of the application, you state you intend to live in the UK.
Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and naturalization are not airline lounges that you attain just to use at your leisure. They are commitments to the country.
