LED light is not coherent such as in lasers. It's incoherent just like fluorescents or even incandescents. And no light occurs during reverse bias because there is no electron flow to excite photon activity. IR-type LEDs are just constructed of different materials to take advantage of the resonant properties in that range of frequencies.
