It's a tricky question. The Stock-Yogo critical values can be used with
the Cragg-Donald statistic, but the theory assumes iid etc.
The Kleibergen-Paap statistic generalizes the C-D stat to cover things
like heteroskedasticity, but it has only an asymptotic justification.
That is, you can use it for testing for underidentification - like the
original use of the C-D stat, Anderson's test, etc. But as far as I
know, nobody has worked out the theory, critical values, etc., for using
it to test for weak identification.
The only thing I can suggest is to use the Stock-Yogo critical values
anyway and just be cautious about interpreting the results.
BTW, you refer to the first-stage F-stat. In the special case of a
single endogenous regressor, the Kleibergen-Paap statistic is
numerically equivalent to a robust first-stage F-stat.
