Do you mean equipped or certified?
The LAA are issuing on a case by case basis permits to fly that certify permit aircraft for IFR flight.
There are plenty of permit aircraft that have amazing glass cockpits that are not certified for IFR but would technically be capable of it.
However it was the assertion of doing an IMC rating under VFR that is incorrect. You must be able to operate under IFR as you will be accepting an IFR clearance and thus the aircraft must be certified for IFR.
As an Instructor and Examiner it’s the first thing I check.
