Well... there's not really a list of specific IVs.
The Hidden Power is somewhat based off if each IV is either odd or even.

So, therefore, the list shown in this link will show which IVs need to be odd or even in order to get that type Hidden Power. Note, there are many combinations of odd and even numbers.

Hope I helped. :)

Note, there is no Normal- or Fairy-type Hidden Power.
Well it is better than the hidden power page on bulbapedia

in generation II, Hidden Power typing is determined by the Attack and Defense IV amounts.

Here's the formula for Gen II IVs:

Where a is the attack IV and b is the defense IV.

Depending on your answer, you will get a different Hidden Power:

0 Fighting
1 Flying
2 Poison
3 Ground
4 Rock
5 Bug
6 Ghost
7 Steel
8 Fire
9 Water
10 Grass
11 Electric
12 Psychic
13 Ice
14 Dragon
15 Dark

Make sure that when you're finished calculating, you floor, or round down the final answer.

In generations III and onward, the formula to calculate Hidden Power typing is this:

Where a is the HP IV's lease significant bit (lsb), b is the attack IV's lsb, c is the defense IV's lsb, d is the special attack IV's lsb, e is the special defense IV's lsb, and f is the speed IV's lsb.

The lsb is basically the last digit of the value's binary code form. So even numbers would have 1 as an lsb, and odd numbers would have 0 as an lsb.
The same values are corresponded to the same solutions as in generation II, so see the list above to see what hidden power each number indicates. If you notice, there's no value for fairy type hidden power, so fairy type hidden power doesn't exist.
Also, like before, make sure to floor your answers.

Hope I helped!
