Look at whether or not the number of clusters is more or less than the number of RHS variables.    Also check the standard errors on RHS in the first stage.

I am using xtivreg2 to estimate a fixed effects model. My data is a
cross-section of firms across countries. My concern is that while the
instruments seem to pass all the tests of weak instruments, the first
stage F-stat (and the corresponding Kleibergen-Paap Wald rk F
statistic) is extremely high making me wonder if there is something
wrong here. This seems to be the case only when I ask for clustered
standard errors. Could someone please help me interpret this? I am
posting the output below.
