Well what shows again how necessary an exact problem description and
a minimal example are.

The problem are the braces and it has nothing to do with graphics.
You get different result from \IfFileExists with pdflatex + xelatex:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\IfFileExists{P(B).pdf}{YES}{NO}

\IfFileExists{"P(B).pdf"}{YES}{NO}
\end{document}

(P(B).pdf was in the current folder for the tests.)

Quoting the file name enables xelatex to find the file, but I don't
know if it is possible to change \IfFileExists for xelatex without
breaking something else. I would suggest that you change your
filenames to "safe" names. Dots, braces, spaces etc may work but
they are quite often the source of troubles (and they often make
documents non-portable).
