Finally the answer!!! The rattle comes from the shifter lock release button mechanism. Remove the left side panel.
You will see the button/plunger makes contact with a flat metal release mechanism. the squeeky rattle occures there. place felt between the plastic from the plunger button on the flat metal surface. The pieces move around and have play some when you hit a bum the squeak is the plastic rubbing the metal contal release for the shifter that is used in emergency situations. THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE ANSWER!!

How tough is it to remove the left side panel. I have a 2015 IS 350 that seems to make the same creaking sound when I hit rough roads

Mine has been rattling since last year. I found the sound coming from white connector just under cup holders assembly. I have no idea how to fix it without completely replacing the whole harness.
