The induced-dipole-induced-dipole forces in the molecule with iodine are so much higher than the one with fluorine that it cancels out the stronger dipole due to the large difference in the amount of electrons between the two elements. In certain cases a stronger dipole moment would create stronger IM forces, but when the amount of electrons is so drastically large the increased polarity is outweighed. Hope this helps!
