Did the U.S. go to war with Iraq immediately after 9/11 happened?

The Wikipedia article says it started in March 2003, but I thought it was earlier than that.

The United States did not actually go to war with Iraq immediately after the 9/11 incident, but it rather waited until 2003. The terrorist attack took place in September 11, 2001. It caused lots of deaths and other casualties together with various destructive demolitions.

The article on Wikipedia on the "War against Terrorism" said we started attacks in Iraq as soon as October 2001 with other UN and NATO nations. I'm using this for a story where four young men go to Iraq after 9/11 happened, and I want to be accurate, I'm just not sure which date to use.

No. The US didn't begin fighting in Iraq until 2003. The terrorist attacks occurred on Sept 11th, 2001.
