In this work, the entanglement of a superposition of bipartite qubit coherent states with non-phased coherent parameters is studied. We use Generalized-concurrence as the measure to quantify the entanglement and drive analytical results in terms of the effective parameters involved. Analyzing the results, we conclude that such states may attain maximum entanglement or no entanglement at all, depending on the choice of the parameters involved.
