Does it need IFHE to be effective? What can it pen with and without?

I should have been more specific. Can it pen 25mm without IFHE?

No, most ships have HE that has a 1/6 caliber pen rule, so 127/6 = 21,16mm

 

which is sufficient to damage most DDs and most superstructures

That is also explained in the Wiki.

Btw. 25mm plating is quite common in the game.
