Gazing into my crystal ball I observed "Jon Wallace"

I did this a while back although it was 2003 to 2008. Unless you have
made any special changes to your server for example increasing the
upload limits for data transfere or such then it should just be a
matter of copying your sites over, creating the relevent applications
/ sites on the new server and upating any DNS references / IP
I'm surprised since Microsoft is so into "wizards" that it doesn't have
an IIS migtration tool, something that produces XML that can be read by
another server. I'm sure this is something that happens quite
frequently - server is dying so you have to move all of its information
to a new server. I had to do that when I had reformat a 2000 server and
install a new 2003 OS. Luckily, I only had one site to migrate, and had
taken screenshots of all the settings that I could call up on another
machine if I got stuck.
To the OP, take screen shots!
