Dont know much about Nimzo, but most often unusual/unorthodox lines are unusual/unorthodox because they arent strongest lines :-)

Playing the Nimzo Indian myself, i usually find it quite hard to play against setupts with Qb3 and Qc2, not allowing the doubled c pawns. Of course at times it is considered to be quite strong, although i easily find myself being able to make them into attackable targets.

I think the Nimzo is very tough for white to crack. I've tried about everything and have had no success. I usually open e4 now because I don't like to play against it.
Take a look at some of Cairo's games - it seems to me he has a flair for playing against this opening. Even in draws, it looks to me like he is the one who had the winning chances.

Well, the best way is to try and transpose into your favourite positions etc. It seems easy to say, and in some cases ts quite hard to transpose, especially as white. I recommend looking at GM games, as white against the Nimzo Indian. This way, you will be able to see teh best play by black being beaten. This usually helps me when i am learning new openings etc.
