verify wether your instance is reachable by pinging it from other public source.

You can read this article here:
This once happened to me aswell and i figured out that my instance was not reachable for any outer destination.

I then changed the inbound rule to my ip and again that didn't work

I changed the vpc to default, as there were 3 vpc's created and my instance was creating using some other vpc.
Then it worked.

Thank you for your solution.
I Already tried with newly created vpc and default vpc. It does not  worked for  me.

I Already referred that given aws knowledge centre url. They  discussed about NAT gateway. But in my case Internet gateway.
Try this documentation

For me, what i suggested you worked
One more thing can you check wether you have been assigned a public IP or not?
Check for your public DNS also. Most of the times the reason for not connecting to internet is that your instance is created but doesn't have a public ip

If you do not want to attach public IP address for instances with Internet access (consider private subnets), NAT instance and NAT gateway can help.

Check your VPC settings, whether you are blocking external IP addresses using a Network ACLS. Generally these are used for controlling traffic between subnets in your VPC. Security groups are the main source for managing external traffic to and from instances in the VPC.

I hope this works :-)

I tried  with open ports. I could do connect Ec2  instance from my system.

The thing is its not connecting to Internet and other  instance  within the same subnet instance.
@omkar not exactly this but yes something similar was my problem and i figured out the VPC that i was using for creating instance was not working, instance were getting created but no public ip was assigned to me.
