To make matters worse for DC, Ajinkya Rahane was holed out to Robin Uthappa off Archer at mid-on an over later.
But then skipper Iyer (53 off 43) joined hands with Dhawan (57 off 33) and the duo initially played cautiously before opening up to take DC forward.
They shared 85 runs for the third wicket off 55 balls to keep DC's momentum going after the early jolts.
Dhawan looked in great nick from the onset, often finding the boundary with his trademark pulls and shots square off the off side.
In the process he scored his 39th fifty in the IPL off just 30 balls but soon after reaching the feat he departed while trying to force the pacer, caught at short third man by Kartik Tyagi off leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal.
