This paper is concerned with the initial-boundary value problem of the generalized Benjamin-Bona-Mahony-Burgers equation in the half space $R_+$

$u_t-$utxx-uxx$+f(u)_{x}=0,\ \ \ \ \ t>0,\ \ x\in R_+,$
$u(0,x)=u_0(x)\to u_+,\ \ \ as \ \ x\to +\infty,$
$u(t,0)=u_b$.

Here $u(t,x)$ is an unknown function of $t>0$ and $x\in R_+$, $u_+$≠$u_b$ are two given constant states and the nonlinear function $f(u)$ is a general smooth function.
Asymptotic stability and convergence rates (both algebraic and exponential) of global solution $u(t,x)$ to the above initial-boundary value problem toward the boundary layer solution $\phi(x)$ are established in  for both the non-degenerate case $f'(u_+)<0$ and the degenerate case $f'(u_+)=0$. We note, however, that the analysis in  relies heavily on the assumption that $f(u)$ is strictly convex. Moreover, for the non-degenerate case, if the boundary layer solution $\phi(x)$ is monotonically decreasing, only the stability of weak boundary layer solution is obtained in . This manuscript is concerned with the non-degenerate case and our main purpose is two-fold: Firstly, for general smooth nonlinear function $f(u)$, we study the global stability of weak boundary layer solutions to the above initial-boundary value problem. Secondly, when $f(u)$ is convex and the corresponding boundary layer solutions are monotonically decreasing, we discuss the local nonlinear stability of strong boundary layer solution. In both cases, the corresponding decay rates are also obtained.
