try this:

Pick Diffuse Material -> Emission -> Emission Texture -> Image and select file with IES light.

thank you rfox,
It worked well!
To avoid the loss of IES data from the file I've found this method useful:
create a diffuse/emission/emission texture/graysacle image/file.ies material and press "Apply" button (as you said).
save the file, close all the octane viewports, save the file again and close Sketchup.
When you'll re-open the file the IES data are preserved.

Sometimes the sources of light aren't visible below a certain angle of view and I don't know why... :roll:
