"File is not valid to draft strictness..." means that the .idf you are trying to import is for a different version of EnergyPlus than the one in your OpenStudio model. The error message should say which version of EnergyPlus you need. Update the .idf using the IdfVersionUpdater tool included with EnergyPlus to match the version used by your version of OpenStudio.
