You can open .inp file in Abaqus to have a sense of geometry, materials, etc. This is called importing. From the main menu bar, go to File > Import > Model. In the pop up window that appears, filter files as .inp file. Browse your .inp file and press OK:
This will allow you to make changes to the model in Abaqus/CAE, though you lose the CAD (3D geometry) in this case. You can only make changes based on the mesh using this method.
Remember that importing just involves commands that Abaqus/CAE supports. There are many only Keyword commands that are not supported yet in CAE environment.
