Just take off the rotation limits on the elbow and set preferred angle on the elbow... say at 90 degrees

where are the rotation limits? are they in the elbow to stop them bending the wrong way?
before you apply ur IK and all, just bend ur arm slightly (at the elbow) the direction it should bend, then right click, "set preferred angle"
