I know of accidents where pilots messed up published IMC let-downs and others where pilots attempted to let down without any sort of pre-planned procedure. However, I can only think of one accident where an "unpublished" let down resulted in an accident and that occurred because the procedure wasn't followed at all accurately. Paradoxically, and sadly, a CAA Ops inspector was on board and perished along with the crew.

The same organisation suffered another, more recent and well publicised accident during an attempted IMC departure by a relatively inexperienced crew.
