What version IOS are you trying to run IPS on? Cisco changed the IPS file format from version 4 to 5 around 12.4(11)T and as a result there appears to be inconsistencies with the definition file format expected with the SDM 2.5, the IOS and what signature definition files Cisco make available.
When I was working on CCNA:S I got hold of a version 5 IPS file (IOS-S313-CLI.pkg) but agiain SDM would not accept it. The trick was to copy it to the routers flash then when selecting the file in SDM point if to the file in flash. SDM would then configure it all up fine. It may work with the sdf file.
EDIT : SDM is end of life so having these inconsistencies is to be expected. One day I guess the exam will be updated to reflect it and adopt Cisco Configuration Professional.
