In brief: Very short time
Often times the IUD itself creates a chemical or hormonal reaction inside the uterus which is immediately toxic to sperm.
However, if a sperm gets through and fertilizes an egg, the IUD itself prevents the pregnancy (99% of the time) from implanting in the uterus.

In brief: About 2 days
Sperm can live in the cervical mucus glands for up to 2 days.
The presence of an iud doesn't change this.
