On an IFR flight from apa to myf in the small transport it was necessary to make an ILS approach because of much haze and long into the setting sun. I had failed to notice that the runway was extremely short for an ILS runway, only 3400'. Although the approach and landing were normal, I did not use reverse and brakes soon enough to avoid running off the end of the runway by about 50'. I made an 180 degree turn and taxied in. There was no damage to the aircraft or passenger, but 1 runway end light was broken.

Title: GA SMT RAN OFF RWY END LNDG AT MYF INTO THE SUN AND HAZE.
Narrative: ON AN IFR FLT FROM APA TO MYF IN THE SMT IT WAS NECESSARY TO MAKE AN ILS APCH BECAUSE OF MUCH HAZE AND LONG INTO THE SETTING SUN. I HAD FAILED TO NOTICE THAT THE RWY WAS EXTREMELY SHORT FOR AN ILS RWY, ONLY 3400'. ALTHOUGH THE APCH AND LNDG WERE NORMAL, I DID NOT USE REVERSE AND BRAKES SOON ENOUGH TO AVOID RUNNING OFF THE END OF THE RWY BY ABOUT 50'. I MADE AN 180 DEG TURN AND TAXIED IN. THERE WAS NO DAMAGE TO THE ACFT OR PAX, BUT 1 RWY END LIGHT WAS BROKEN.
