The only way to alter the power of an .ies file is to edit the actual ies file with a text editor :)

Hi Filippo!
there are to small software that can manage ies files, by modding light power and/or the design how the light come out from the illuminated bulb
You have try to search:

Generator IES.exe
iesviewer29.exe by Andrey Legotin

the two software no need installation and are very small.
Personally I prefer iesviewer29.exe.
let me know

Or another way that's been suggested before, use reinhard tonemapping* and lower the power of all your other lights**, thus making the ies light "brighter".

* Or change the settings in one of the other tonemapping methods to compensate.
** If it's a sun/sky scene, this won't really work.
From uncyclopedia.org, on "Elephant's Dream":

"The choice of the title is highly significant, because while the movie does not feature any elephants nor dreams, no one understands what happens anyway."
