It's not too often, but sometimes nothing but the ILS will get you where you want to be.
OK, but that's kinda like saying "is there light IFR?" and the answer is absolutely ... but just not at 200 & 1/2 and for the other 1% there are lots of LPV approaches where there is no ILS! Let's have them both
