Good day David

have you came right if not try this method

Firstly, please confirm you can run the app in visual studio, and can browse it in IE11, if in developer envrionment can't also browser the app, it seems not the IIS issue, maybe the IE11 have not be set up correctly, please try to refer to this thread:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie11-iewindows8_1/this-page-cant-be-displayed/67749b28-7c68-46d8-a889-bcf79b263040

Secondly, if the app can work in developer environment, just can't work when deploy it to IIS, please try to refer to the following points:

Clear the IE11 cache, and then try brower the app again.
See the IIS log file, to check the what arised, you can see the log file in "%SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles
