Lewis Structure & Polarity

From: Echo

I need to find if IF5 is polar or non-polar. Now if start with drawing lewis structure and calculating the partial charge to find the net dipole-moment, is that a good way to look at the problem. And even if I have to draw the lewis structure, do I have to know the bond shape (i.e. trigonal, tetrahedral, ect.). If no, then how im gonna calculate the magnitude of the vector??
