Maybe it's a stupid question, but usually what type of files do you download with IDM? Do you download only exe, msi, and zip files with IDM, or do you download mainly audio, video and other compressed file types like *.rars?

IDM is my default download handler. I use it to download everything except webpages & images...

As Reese Anschultz stated, Download Insight is designed to notify immediately with some portals, or to notify on file access with other portals, such as IDM. I am not aware of any way to change this behavior, and I assume that there are likely technical reasons why not all portals will support immediate notifications - otherwise I assume Norton would not be particular about portals and would treat them all alike.
You said "All other methods are time consuming which matters when you download hundreds of file per hour." Norton is really not designed for hundreds of files per hour. That is not typical for most users, who generally download one thing at a time. I'm not sure that Download Intelligence, even if you could get it to work with IDM, would perform as you envision for that volume of files, anyway. My experience is that even immediate notifications are not always lightning-fast due, I presume, to the program having to query the backend server for reputation information on any new files.

I don't work on the end product so I don't know if there are any command-line methods to invoke what you're looking for. I did look at the actual implementation on an installed system and it is using a shell extension DLL. This probably means that the feature you're asking for doesn't exist but you could always suggest it in the product ideas forum.
A hack that should work for you, though, is to invoke something like 'cmd copy [file] NUL:'. This will cause the file to be opened once the download has completed, causing the notification to be generated.
