Check your coil. I have had this happen on two vehicles and both times it was the coil.

The distributor is brand new

When you look at your distributor you will see wires leading to each spark plug. You will also notice an additional wire. This wire leads to your coil, which gives your spark plugs the high energy spark to detonate the gasoline. The purpose of the distributor is to send the sparks to the individual spark plugs. The coil is what I would replace (cheap compared to distributor). Hope this makes sense and best of luck!

No.

Where is the coil and what does it look like?

Well I just learned something. On your car the coil is part of the distributor. I also learned that if it cranks but will not start, that the most common reason for your Integra is the Main Relay which is located under the dash and usually near the steering column.
