You'll first want to be sure that your IES file is Type A with the proper angle conventions, shown below:
Open photopia|reports and browse to the IES file, or right click on the exported IES file and choose Open.
Choose IES Report from the left menu and then choose any of the 4 FAA Compliance Reports from the thumbnails.
The first page of the report contains an intensity plot that shows the distribution.
The second page of the report contains a simplified intensity table which shows the % of target candela along with a pass/fail indication both for minimum and maximum candela locations.
