The MT2060 is, afaik the MT2050, not similar at all. MT2050 is an in-can 
tuner whereas the MT2060 is a silicon tuner. The IF1 offset Chun Chung Lo 
is asking for is the offset for the first IF. This offset is to have a 
better alignment when the signal is at down-converted to the second IF 
(around 36 MHz).

You can find a calibration function in the reference driver from 
Microtune. You should have it, when you are working on a hw-ref-design.

A simple why to do is to try all offsets (after having the demod locked) 
and afterwards take the one where the demod gave you the highest C/N.
