The only IWADs that exist for vanilla Doom are Doom, Doom 2 and the two episodes of Final Doom. As such, I'm inclined to believe you meant PWADs.

Define megawads. Do you require 32 maps for it to be an "essential" megawad? Or can any multi-level wads qualify?

 

For instance, Suspended in Dusk is only 4 levels long, but it won a cacoward. I think the award presentation said something like, "You won't believe you're playing vanilla Doom."

No End in Sight is vanilla friendly save for certain levels of episode 4.

Another two vanilla megawads for The Ultimate Doom. I haven't tested if they are compatible with Doom Registered (certain wads without E4Mx levels have TEXTUREx/PNAMES lumps which need the missing SKY4).

YES YES YES on No End in Sight. The best UDoom megawad of all time if you ask me.

I would add, Perdition's Gate and Hell To Pay, two commercial products wich are pretty fun, great music too.
PS: I recommend creating a patch to change the enemies and sounds back in Hell To Pay though, the new sprites are questionable. It comes handy in Freedoom too.

I've made it my mission to point out whenever it comes up that Perdition's Gate has officially been as free as any other Megawad for a while now. But as far as I know, Hell to Pay is considerably more elusive.
