Better export a database using mysqldump and then importing it into a new server.
(mysqldump files are augmented SQL files, and work accross versions).

Each of the .IBD files is one table.  (file per table setting) of InnoDB.
Ensure you create a new database of type InnoDB... as a starter.
  1. Step 1 – Create a MySQL Database and Recreate the Table.
  2. Step 2 – Find Table Schema.
  3. Step 3 – Recreate the Database Table.
  4. Step 4 – Delete the New . IBD File.
  5. Step 5 – Copy the Old . IBD file.
  6. Step 6 – Import the Tablespace.

You cannot directly do that to AWS RDS instances. You have no underlying disks. Same is the case with workbench.

You need to restore that ibd file in a separate mysql instance, may be your local. Take mysqldump and restore it on AWS RDS.

Here is a blog to restore-single-mysql-table-from-xtrabackup with video demo.
