so i guess my question is how do you get to the complex order book.. and circumvent the market makers at IB
You have to change you option screen from SMART to CBOE or ISE. You will see the option markets from these exchanges. As you set up your spread, it will ask you at every point are you sure you don't want smart route. Choose "no" each time. Sometimes the order is still rejected at the end. If it goes through and you get an execution, your rate will be $1.00/contract and they might not pass on credits for adding liquidity. You have to ask.
If the markets are wide, try splitting the order between the smart route and the ISE or CBOE and see what happens.
