I have a flight between Istanbul to New York JFK (Turkish Airlines) in 4th August. I will arrive in JFK at 4:30pm.

How can I transfer my baggage? Do I have to carry my baggage from Terminal 1 to Terminal 8? Do I enough time for check in for the Tampa flight? Thanks.

You will clear Customs and Immigration first and then you will have to separately recheck your luggage for the second flight. You have enough time with 3 hour time window.

Yes it is and your bags should be clipped to final destination.
