In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, right click on the web site to get the properties. In the Web Site tab, make sure the Enable logging option is checked, click on that Properties button, and see the Log file directory and Log file name. That's the file you want to look at.

You can manually look at the raw log files if you really want to. But more likely you'll want to use a log analyzer program (we use Web Trends, but there is some freeware out there as well).
