All the tutorials I've seen so far on youtube are crap.
The best thing to do is figuring out how it works by yourself. The documentation written by tijitdamijit for IWBTE[v1] helps a lot. I don't know whether v2 contains it.

Edit: Here's the documentation.

To Make a non-shitty IWBTgame, You'll have to do a whole lot of GM ass kissing. >_>

Learn how gm works. Just learn the basics of GM, then read the documentation so you know what to do.
If you need tutorials, why don't you check the place you got the program from.
