La bonne réponse est "vous êtes entré" selon Kwizbot. Pourquoi pas on n'utilise le pluriel d'entrer?

Just because vous can be plural doesn't mean it always is.


For example, Monsieur Untel, êtes-vous allé à la banque?



I'm only speaking to one person, so the past participle does not require any agreement here, in comparison to Monsieur et Madame Untel, êtes-vous allés à la banque? where it does.
