Are you asking about "if clauses"? There are certain tense pairings that work with these clauses:

-past/past, If I left early, then I went to the store.
-past perfect/conditional, If I had left early, then I would have gone to the store.
-present/present, If I leave early, then I go to the store.
-present/future, If I leave early, then I will go to the store.
