I have not made this particular journey myself but....

You can find train times and details for almost all European trains in English here:

Journey takes from around 2 hours, with two changes in Lille and Kortrijk

The fare is a bit complex, as the journey includes a segment outside France. You can find the Calais>Kortrijk ('Courtrai' in French) the French language version of SNCF:

voyages-sncf.com/billet-trai...

Don't choose English, because you will be taken to Raileurope, a ticketing agency...the fare quoted there is not the fare you will pay at the station, ad not all departures are listed.

Search for your route/date/time and then click 'reservez' to find the fare. Calais > Kortrijk costs from 22.90 euro (depending on departure time)

You can find fares for Kortrijk> Ieper on the Belgian railway website in English:

http://www.b-rail.be/main/E/

It's 4.80 euro, so I think the total fare will be somewhere around 28-30 euro.

I have not been able to find a viable bus alternative. Hopefully another VT-er will be able to advise....
