For decades I have used "A Pronouncing Dictionary of American English" by Kenyon and Knott as a concise and accessible tool in learning the IPA. The fact that it's still in print must mean that people still find it useful, but I'm looking for a more recent publication which has about the same scope and purpose and surely has some changes in symbols, stress, etc.

If you want newer, the Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary current edition dates from 2011. You could even line the two up to see how they differ in their representation of US English.
