Is it possible to get the IE Version with Get-CIMInstance, or does anyone know another elegant way to pull this information from a remote computer? Thanks!

You can find the product version like this

(Get-ChildItem 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe').VersionInfo.ProductVersion

Wrap it in Invoke-Command for remote machines

Alternatively using CIM

Get-CimInstance -ClassName CIM_DataFile -Filter "Name = 'C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe'" | select -ExpandProperty Version

Add the computername or CIMsession for a remote machine

After checking the CIM version gives a more accurate result
