“I’d” the contraction of I would is followed by verb1.
– I would (I’d) like some more tea, please.
– I would (I’d) buy those shoes if they were on sale.

“I’d” the contraction of I had is followed by either verb3 or better.
– I had (I’d) finished my homework before she came.
– I had (I’d) better go now.
