My daughter's SSN is listed for the IRA for the 1099-DIV. Her dividends were 95 and her capital gain was 1509. Do I claim it?

Do not include the dividend on anyone's return. Money invested in aan IRA is not taxable. The income grows tax free.

On the other hand, you do not get a 1099-Div for an IRA. So, what you probably have is a UTMA (UGMA) custodial account, and not an IRA,  and that is taxable.
The total amount is more than $1050, which means it must be reported, even though no tax will be due.

If his/her only income is from interest and dividends, Alaska PFD or capital gains distributions shown on a 1099-DIV, there is a provision for entering it on your return, using form 8814. Enter at Less common income / Child's income.
But, it is usually best for him to file a separate return, as qualified dividends and capital gain distributions could be taxed at a higher rate on the parent's return.
