You need to go into the MMC and with the IIS snap in loaded
go in to your website properties by right clicking.

Once there you need to set it so you have

Allow anonymouse connections and configure that with the IUSER account you have mentioned. Now you need to set "Allow ONLY anonymous connections"

Make sure you have at least write permission for the anonymous account as you have said above.

This should work fine.  If you want to allow specific user access to other parts of your website, do the same as above but instead of right clicking on your website root, find the page or directory you wish and make the changes.  That way only the current selection will have those properties and not the whole website, since it is a hierarchical approach.

Hope this helps.

You may need to double click on your root dir top expand it out.  Then you can apply the permissions changes to individual directories

It is important that you also allow the same permissions on the area where you intend people to access.
