The standard advice of arriving 2 hours before a domestic flight or 3 hours for an international flight applies to PHX. For a relatively large airport Sky Harbor wait times scores pretty well. Be aware that during busy periods, typically am Mon - Fri and holidays such as spring break things will slow down somewhat. Note the early bag check-in service the airport used to offer has been discontinued.
You can view the availability of TSA PreCheck at the Phoenix Airport terminals by looking at the table above.
For information on joining TSA PreCheck and reducing your Sky Harbor security wait times visit https://www.tsa.gov/precheck. Also there is a TSA PreCheck Enrollment Center at the airport where pre-approved persons can arrange an appointment and complete enrollment.
Before COVID Terminal 4 serviced all international arrivals and the PHX wait times for those passengers were not known for being overly long. International arrivals have been few and far between now to judge consistent wait times for arriving non-US citizens.

Fucking sky harbor airport TSA pussy mother fucker needed to take me aside after already explaining that I was traveling with a temporary ID to pat me down. Had to talk my shit when they were copping feels on my johnson. I kept the same energy
Why does Seattle struggle with staffing levels so often? Even PRE Covid there were lots of issues. Are they paying the TSA people enough to live in the Seattle area? I don't see these same issues at Sky Harbor in Phoenix, so it makes me wonder...
It’s been almost 1 year since I last flew. Returning to Alaska, what a fiasco security was. TSA at Sky Harbor in Phx. Ugh. It’s not even busy and the surly attitude because their machine read the bar code improperly on my husbands driver’s license. It was a PITA.
Not even joking — Just held up the line at Sky Harbor airport after going through the scanner machine & “setting off an alarm in the breast area.” 😂 Bonus — Got a nice chest massage by the female TSA agent 👍
