Iberia Plus is the loyalty program of Iberia. Their currency is Avios, though their loyalty program is separate from British Airways Avios. Members of both programs who have had both accounts open for at least 90 days have the ability to transfer points between the two programs, provided they have earned Avios in both programs. Read more about transferring Avios between programs here. Alternatively, Iberia is a transfer partner of American Express Membership Rewards, though points only transfer 250:200 from American Express.
The current sale is on off-peak awards. Here is a chart showing award pricing for various bands, one-way, before the discount:
