When you import an IFC into SketchUp it is like you have drawn all the geometry in SketchUp to begin with. OpenStudio does not take a SketchUp model and automatically convert it to an OpenStudio model. It may be possible to use the attributes imported from IFC to automatically convert the SketchUp model to OpenStudio but this has not been done nor is it planned. This tutorial shows how to import an IFC to OpenStudio via BimServer.
