It's a common issue with legendary armor pieces that have Increased Attack Speed. That's supposed to be a weapons-only affix. It's a version of Attack Speed Increase which only works for the particular weapon, not your overall speed - an important distinction if dual wielding. Because the legendary is not actually a weapon, it has no effect on your overall speed. Thus it does nothing.
The items are supposed to have ASI like other armor items, but they don't.
Weapons - (%) Increased Attack Speed
Armor - Attack Speed Increased by (%)
If you see IAS on a piece of armor, steer clear. I think you may be hosed on that item, however =(

I just double checked on the AH...it looks like the reason for this may be that some Boj Anglers come with Increased Attack Speed. Others have Attack Speed Increased by.
Only one of those will work.
IAS shouldn't be spawning on armor at all, it's a bug.
