IGES File problem

While importing an IGES file, I have an error for this particular part. Which  doesn't happen often. But when it does, it's always a pain.

 

The part is a sheet metal part and one of the flanged areas did not import correctly. It's shown as clear while the rest look normal. I tried Feature Works > Recognize features, with no success.

 

Any way to repair/rebuild the imported file and correct the missing face?

 

 

Side question, not really that important:

 

In the attached part, you will see I extruded and cut away the original bend Radi for each flange, then added a fillet to these areas to create bend radius to match our tooling for forming. I have done this MANY time, and always works great. But, is there a better way to do this? A more complex sheet metal part could really eat up some time when doing it this way.
