I shoot a lot of BIF and teach BIF classes in Florida (Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater) and find that IS helps BIF shots by stabilizing the image for the AF sensors. Chuck Westfall (technical adviser with Canon USA's professional products marketing division) has also stated that IS will help with AF for many fast moving subjects.

Very interesting, however, so far my findings are the exact opposite.

I'm certainly no authority on shooting with IS, but every authority I've ever read recomends turning it off when shooting at high speed.

I am the one who advised to turn image stabilizer off . . .

I inserted it for you here.

Oops, my bad. I knew that. Thanks for making my post coherent.
