I'm presuming that you're taking all of your pictures on the iA setting then? It does make a bit of a difference in how we explain the exposure differences.

The camera can't handle the extremes in a single shot so you can either try full HDR and take multiple exposures or take a single shot somewhere in the middle and 'fix' it a bit on the computer. If you prefer the latter, I find if you set the exposure so that the sky looks good (detail in the clouds but don't worry too much about minor blown highlights) then it's easier to 'fix'. You often can't get the clouds absolutely perfect without making the rest so dark that it's useless.

If you're just shooting JPEG and not RAW, you can try the intelligent exposure setting which should lighten the shadows a bit in-camera but I'm not massively impressed with it.
