Most likely the op only tried to copy the ibdata file(s) and not the
iblog files.

A big honking waving hand over here saying YES, use xtrabackup.  It
will be a pretty quick recovery process since the db was shut down
cleanly.  Note that it will restore ALL tables' data, not just the
ibdata and iblog files.  Just make sure that your innodb settings in
my.cnf match.
