Check all your vacuum hoses and make sure they are hooked up properly and have no cracks or holes in them.

I have the same problem and have read quite a bit about the IAC and using throttle body cleaner (carb cleaner?). I don't know if the IAC can go bad or just get dirty.

Are all of the vacuum lines contained in the engine compartment?

Have you done any work to the engine lately like removing the exhaust manifold? Have you worked on anything that could have knocked a vacuum hose loose or broken its connection? Any vacuum leak will cause high engine RPMs.

No, there is a vacuum line that leads to the HVAC system that controls some of the HVAC's parts like flapper/mix doors.

It actually started after I cleaned my throttle body. The PO put in a cool air intake and it looks like he cut off part of as hoes and tried to plug it
