That's fine.

Did you load imenu+.el? Not just imenu.el, but imenu+.el (it will, in turn,
load imenu.el).

Did you visit an Emacs-Lisp file - for example, imenu+.el? In an Emacs-Lisp
buffer, you should see a separate menu-bar menu, Defs, with menu items for
definitions in the visited file. In a different buffer, that is not in
Emacs-Lisp mode, you will not see menu Defs.

Possible, but I doubt that is your problem.

Before you try to debug things, please make sure that you have actually
tried what I suggest above: load imenu+.el and then visit an Emacs-Lisp
