No, it is *not* too small for one adult imp.
While a 10 gallon is ok as well, it is a waste of space for a single scorpion. It makes finding prey more difficult, makes maintence more difficult, maintaing proper temps and humidity more difficult, etc. If you had a pair, then yes, a 10 would be necessary but for one, a 5.5 is perfect.
