Pseudo-hoop algebras are non-commutative generalizations of hoop-algebras, originally introduced by Bosbach. In this paper, we study ideals in pseudo-hoop algebras. We define congruences induced by ideals and construct the quotient structure. We show that there is a one-toone correspondence between the set of all normal ideals of a pseudo-hoop algebra A with condition (pDN) and the set of all congruences on A. Also, we prove that if A is a good pseudo-hoop algebra with pre-linear condition, then a normal ideal P of A is prime if and only if A/P is a pseudo-hoop chain. Furthermore, we analyse the relationship between ideals and filters of A.
