If they are created, it means that the IMD metadata domain is set on your
GeoTIFF files. Presumably because it is also set in the source images you use.
There's no option to suppress writing the IMD files when the IMD metadata
domain is set on a GeoTIFF file. So either make sure it is not set, or suppress
the .imd as a postprocessing.
But just doing a plain driver.Create() without setting metadata should not
result in a .imd file being written.

Odd setup. I presume you know what you are doing ;-)
