Just checking the obvious first...Is the Multiplier value of the IES material set above zero?

You're welcome. But...1 Million for the multiplier value? That seems extremely high! Is this scene modeled to real world scale? Modeling to scale has a great impact on lighting. Under Edit>Set Scene Units, what do you have it set to?
