DB2 is a relational database and IMS is not.

The programs that use IMS probably do lots of things that are just not done in relational databases for good reason, so if you just translate it you will either get errors in relational constraint or you will configure DB2 to stop enforcing relations, losing most of the advantages DB2 has in the first place.
