Do we only use Kp when the reaction is a homogeneous equilibria of gas?

You use Kp when dealing with partial pressure :) I hope this helps.

You can use Kp when the equilibrium reaction involves gases! You'll usually know when to use Kp if the units for the amount of gasses refers to the partial pressure.
