If you want to model a IMU in gazebo is just to insert the next code in the joint where you want to have the IMU and a gazebo topics will be published,

<sensor name='Vilma_IMU' type='imu'>
<pose>0 0.000000 0.5 0.000000 -0.000000 0.000000</pose>

hector_gazebo_plugins does not use the IMU sensor implemented in recent Gazebo versions. You can directly add it as a model plugin without the <sensor> tag, similar to the original gazebo_ros_imu plugin in package gazebo_plugins. hector_quadrotor_gazebo contains a urdf description that uses the IMU.
