Delete or rename ~/.wine and reinstall IE7 using winetricks. IE8 will install but doesn't work. IE7 might be usable enough to meet your needs, but don't count on it working well as a browser. Using real IE is neither recommended nor supported; the main reason to install it is for native dlls that some apps need.

wine --version
