My favorite is "Improving Web Application Security: Threats and Countermeasures" which is a Microsoft publication and available online.  It complements the "out-of-the-box" security afforded by IIS6 and IIS7 by pointing out that the applications have to be secure, too.

It is a fairly old publication but still has relevant guidelines for application developers. It can be downloaded from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=E9C4BFAA-AF88-4AA5-88D4-0DEA898C31B9&displaylang=en 

The thread that shalabsharma pointed out on formus.iis.net has some useful pointers, too
