You are right, simplification time tends to infinity. But the integral
is tivial.

Standard way: Put Sin[x]-> (Exp[I x]-Exp[-I x])/(2 I)  and use
Integrate[Exp[I n x] Exp[I m x], {x,0,2Pi}]
especially if n and \rho are integers.

Brute force: Calculate the indefinite integral (don't forget ";"!)

f[x_]=Integrate[(Sin[x])^24 Exp[I n x], x];

f[2Pi]-f[0]//Together
-((620448401733239439360000*I*(-1 + E^(2*I*n*Pi)))/
((-24 + n)*(-22 + n)*(-20 + n)*(-18 + n)*(-16 + n)*
(-14 + n)*(-12 + n)*(-10 + n)*(-8 + n)*(-6 + n)*
(-4 + n)*(-2 + n)*n*(2 + n)*(4 + n)*(6 + n)*(8 + n)*
(10 + n)*(12 + n)*(14 + n)*(16 + n)*(18 + n)*(20 + n)*
(22 + n)*(24 + n)))
