How do you set bonds? (As far as I remember, leap ignores CONECT
in pdb files). If there are no bonds, no impropers will be applied.
Have you looked at the residue in xleap? See the biotin demo for an
example of residue-building from pdb:

Assuming there are bonds, the next thing to do would be to list
the impropers you expect to see, then check that the central
atom of the improper is in the right place (3rd I believe).
