Slippage for large(r) trade size in EUR/USD

Hi all,

I'm testing some swing trading strategies on the EUR/USD pair.
My position size ranges from $2m to $7m.

Anyone can shed some light on the expected slippage per trade, with this size?
If possible, let me know of slippage per side (i.e. when entering the trade, so I will double it for the whole trade).

Thanks a lot

PS I am using Interactive Brokers, in case someone has specific experience with them.
