I'm using OL 2.3 rc1 with a canvas for IE, made by google.
You can download from http://sourceforge.net/projects/excanvas/
Include excanvas in your code and add a canvas tag.
<canvas id="test" width="580" height="362" style="display:none"></canvas>
On lib\OpenLayers\Layer\Canvas.js I have changed the initialize for this:

    initialize: function(name, options) {
        OpenLayers.Layer.prototype.initialize.apply(this, arguments);

        if (navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft")>-1)
            this.canvas = document.getElementById('test');


It works well for me.

Good luck.
