It's  best not to analyse the IOC line by line as the examiner will find it a bit "dry" and somewhat "boring" as it's the default go-to for many students, and consequently you may be marked down in the Structure criterion. What I found was the best layout for me was to arrange it by themes. So during the prep time, I brought in several highlighters, and highlighted the lines according to what theme they present (e.g. Identity is represented by green, pursuit of happiness is yellow etc.) and so I did it that way. I highly recommend finding your own strategy that works best, and feel free to use my thematic structure :)

I did the same thing with the highlighting and analysing by theme and did pretty well in our practice IOC.

I'd recommend just memorising the themes for each poem beforehand (usually they're all quite similar - you can always blame society) so you don't have to waste time working them out. If you find it difficult to analyse a poem by theme don't worry, because more often than not themes appear chronologically. 

If a poem has a tonne of structural features/develops an idea throughout the poem, it may be appropriate to do it line by line anyways, so you don't miss anything.

In any case, as long as you have some sort of structure I'm sure you'll do great :)
