If the original data was in columns A and B on the active sheet and started in row 2 this code will put the 'expanded' data in columns D and E.
Sub ExpandData()
Dim arrIn As Variant
Dim arrOut As Variant
Dim I As Long
Dim J As Long
Dim cnt As Long

    arrIn = Range("A2", Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).Value
    
    ReDim arrOut(1 To Application.Sum(Application.Index(arrIn, , 2)), 1 To 2)
    
    cnt = 1
    
    For I = LBound(arrIn) To UBound(arrIn)
        For J = 1 To arrIn(I, 2)
            arrOut(cnt, 1) = arrIn(I, 1)
            arrOut(cnt, 2) = DateSerial(2016, 1, 1) + J - 1
            cnt = cnt + 1
        Next J
    Next I
    
    Range("D1:E1").Value = Array("ID", "Date")
    
    With Range("D2").Resize(UBound(arrOut, 1), UBound(arrOut, 2))
        .Value = arrOut
        .EntireColumn.AutoFit
    End With
    
End Sub
