Bus trip from Madrid to Leon

Hi there, I am flying into Madrid arriving on the 23rd May, at 1.45pm. I am keen to take a bus to Leon at 3pm leaving from Terminal 4 with Alsa. Would anyone know if I would be able to get through Immigration in time to catch this bus?
If not a suggested place to stay in Madrid for night to catch bus/train following morning would be appreciated. Also good spot to stay in Leon when I arrive. I am travelling on my own. Many thanks.

I have not even noticed customs at Madrid, so it should be fast. It was just a passport check. You can reserve a seat on the bus over the internet -- I think I paid with PayPal, but credit cards may work as well -- or you can buy a ticket from the driver. The bus stands at T-4 terminal are easy to find, but you will need to find your bus by checking each bus as it arrives. It is good exercise!
