This is perhaps an inconsistency where the IEEEtran.bst LyX is using is not
in line with current IEEE requirements.  This statement assumes you are
using BibDesk to generate a BibTeX file that LyX then uses with the
IEEEtran style.

I recommend adjusting your current IEEEtran.bst, searching for an
IEEE-compliant .bst to use, or creating your own with makebst.  A workflow
would be like:

First use latex makebst to be routed through a menu-driven interface to
define the various stylistic parameters for the bibliography entries. This
will create a .log and .dbj file. From there, run tex ...djb to create a
standard .bstfile.

Some guessing-and-testing will likely be necessary.

I don't believe so.  The .cls file controls the document layout, the .bst
file defines the bibliography style.
