Please select the Wireless icon on your printer. Select Wireless Direct and set it to enabled. Then, on your iPad, go to Settings > Wireless and select the Wireless Direct SSID with the Photosmart 7520 within its name. Allow 2-3 minutes for the connection to initialize and try printing. Please let me know what happens.
