As someone who was watching this approach live, I’d love to know what happened
too. THe only thing I can think of is something weird with that airport in
particular, or FSX’s information for it, but that was very odd.
HOpefully someone has some thoughts.

This is the first time I encountered one of these approaches with IYP.
I loaded the ILS approach frequency--keep in mind I was coming into
Twin Falls (KTWF), and I did the approach checklist when it suggested.
When I contacted tower, ATC, instead of saying to come strait in like
most times, they instead said to come in left base approach.
I acknowledged the instruction, and I figured IYP would handle it
here... it did something different than I've scene before, where it
descended very slowly from this point on. When I did the approach
checklist, while I was doing it the glidesloap and local became alive,
so I figured I was doing it right. Then I just played the waiting
I was alarmed when IYP told me I was six miles in front of the
airport--I overshot, but I figured that it'd come back or something.
Nope, it decided to land 19 miles out in a field. I got conformation
it was a field when Delta Virtual held the flight for review and asked
why I landed in a field.
Did I do something wrong? Is there something about this type of
approach in the manual? If so, I think I missed it.
