Ilford SFX is extra red sensitive. I've never tired it myself, but I believe you can get some interesting effects with a red filter. This is similar to the effects of true IR, i.e. Black skies and white foliage. It might be fun to try it with other filters, also see what you get without a filter.
Of course, unlike digital, you can't go blasting off and just delete the ones you don't like in-camera. SFX currently sells for about GBP7 a roll so every shot's going cost you 20p, then add processing and printing.
I hope you got the F65 really cheap, because an Infra Red filter for your DSLR might have been a cheaper option.
Still, I hope you have some fun with it.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
