Default Indefinite leave spouse

If I have indefinite leave, can I travel with my husband who has a British passport anywhere with in Europe? Or would I need to get visa first?

If you current nationality depends on a visa to visit Europe then, yes, you still need to get a visa.

No, that's not right. That would only be true if you had an Article 10 residence card (by exercising treaty rights in the UK if your husband were a national of a different EEA country). A UK BRP is not an Article 10 residence card. As Crawford says, you need a visa

Even if I'm traveling just for a week as holiday? And my biometric card won't give me access to the country?

Yes. Your biometric card is only valid in the UK.

How soon can I apply for neutralisation as I have my indefinite leave to remain ? Also for neutralisation do you need to show income?

It's 'naturalisation' - 'neutralisation' is not something you would want...

You can naturalise as British any time as long as you meet the residence requirements, since you have ILR and a British spouse.

How do you explain the following obtained by the iat website

Visa Exemptions:
Family members of a national of an EEA Member State or Switzerland, with a residence permit issued by United Kingdom to family members of a Union Citizen. They are visa exempt for a maximum stay of 90 days.

The following should be taken into account even if holding a Visa:
Family members of a national of an EEA Member State or Switzerland, with a residence permit issued by United Kingdom are allowed a total stay of 90 days in a period of 180 days.

Warning:
Union Citizens are nationals of an EEA Member State and Switzerland who moved from the country of nationality to reside in another EEA Member State or in Switzerland.
The visa exemption for family members of a Union Citizen applies if:
- they travel with or to join the Union Citizen, and
- the residence permit is issued by:
-- the country of residence, which must be different from the country of nationality of the Union Citizen, or
-- the country of nationality of the Union Citizen, if the Union Citizen and family member returned within 6 months after departing from the country of residence
