I created an IP, which I use in my design and Vivado finds it, but whenever I run synthesis the synthesis fails, with error: [IP_Flow 19-993] Could not find IP file for IP 'my_IP_0_0'. So I removed that IP and replaced it with the same IP (but I think Vivado thinks I am using both IPs, because I found that if I go to top_design.bxml, there are 2 instances of that IP, and I am only using 1), so if I locate that IP (the one that is causing me problems), and delete it the synthesis goes through and the bitstream generates. So this is ok, but I don't want to do this every time I generate the bitstream. So is this like some bug Vivado has, or am I doing something wrong (is there a way to tell vivado that instance is not in the design anymore)?
Thank you in advance,

you should clear cache and make a new synth and impl (synth_2, impl_2).
this may help you.
Don't forget to give kudos and mark it as an accepted solution if your issue gets resolved.

Vivado tends to mess up sometimes when updating things.
Sometimes it helps to issue a reset-project tcl command.
Sometimes not, then I copy the sources and start again while swearing in different languages
I suppose you are adding your IP to a repository and using it from there, aren't you? In that case they should behave like any other IP from logicore
