    What's IMU calibration? Is that different from the regular calibration?

    That depends on what you are calling 'regular calibration'. You should calibrate both the IMU and the Compass.

    So did you do an IMU calibration? If not, try it.

    Anytime you make any changes to your phantom add a tracker add motors do a battery mod do a firmware upgrade, you should always do and IMU calibration in the app.
