if you can control the lighting, you can light normal and grade in post(like day for night). if grading in camera, do a few tests to see where the skin gets grainy. there may be some youtube videos with similar exposure latitude tests called +1, +2, +3, -1, -2, -3 and then re-corrected back to normal to see how much detail is retained. Also, when shooting dark scenes its even more important to have high CRI lights as high ISO will introduce noise and loss of chroma color.
The best IRE will depend on the gamma camera settings. Each camera is different so a 10 min. test will save you hours of work.
