Clearly ISIS is a threat to the population in Iraq and Syria. But it doesn't pose a threat to the World. In the worst case scenario the World may suffer some more 9/11 style terror attacks (which is unlikely as any such plots will likely be stopped well before they can be executed). But note that while 9/11 was perceived to be a huge game changing event and led to the US to embark on the War on Terror, it actually didn't even make a dent in the US' military strength.
If anything, the political resolve after 9/11 made the US de-facto a stronger force. Also, it led to improved relations between the US and Russia (the US objected less to the Russian military intervention in Chechnya). Similarly, I think that if ISIS were left alone and they were to establish a califate in Iraq and Syria, the World would see that as a big threat which would lead countries to put their differences aside, which would benefit most of the World.
