As in a document with two columns this space is determined by the length \columnsep. Modify this length till it fits your needs. But it seems more to be a matter of hyphenation.
Thorsten, can you provide a sample entry of changing the column separation to add more space between the index columns? Everything I have tried is not working and generates about 20 errors.

And it seems that you want others to guess what you tried. Simply add the modification right before starting the index.

There's no reason for embarrassment. We all once have been beginners. But code is always better than descriptions and makes the solution to an issue easier.
