The SDK is just a zip containing the link time libraries and headers, you'd still have to add the proper paths to those in Visual Studio (Tools->Options->Projects And Solutions->VC++ Directories->Show Directories for: Include files / Library Files).

#include "IL/il.h"

#include <IL\il.h>

For two reasons, first the <> are used for system headers, which il.h is not and second, because \ is Windows specific and thus, not portable.
