The IEEE citation style almost seems designed to get students into trouble! You should number sources based on the order that the sources appear in the paper. If you reorder sections of your paper, you have to renumber your sources. I have seen papers in which the authors probably reordered their sources incorrectly (and successfully frustrated readers like me).

I have thought about how to "fix" this problem. You can cite authors by name in the text and replace the names with numbers using the replace function--but only once you have completed your final draft.

IEEE citation has one (dubious) advantage: you refer to your sources by their numbers instead of by their names. For example, say that you would ordinarily refer to the fifth source in your final draft as "Anderson and Clive." Instead of writing "According to Anderson and Clive...", you would write "According to [5]...".
