I have installed several times wordpress in IIS server, you can install, but
only think is that, you may not enjoy all the benefit and feature of the
wordpress, if you do not have root access to IIS, if you are on shared
hosting, then, it would be hell, even then it is possibile and to run wp.

all the best, i would be very happy to help you solve the problem, even then
there are lot of turorials and other helps available online.
