there is currently no Fe B3LYP pseudopotential. Most people 
would use the corresponding BLYP PP in such a case (and also
for all other elements in the calculation).
The best choice for a basis set is the MOLOPT series. You
can find them in BASIS_MOLOPT in tests/QS.

Finally, you could generate your own (B3LYP) pseudos and 
basis sets using the atomic code that is part of CP2K.
Some examples can be found in tests/ATOM.

Subject: [CP2K:3995] GTH BLYP and B3LYP basis sets and pseudopotentials for Fe

                  Dear GTH,
  I am preparing QM(DFT)/MM calculations for a chemical reaction catalyzed by an iron enzyme. I am interested in running the simulations both at BLYP and hybrid B3LYP level. While there is a Fe GTH optimized pseudopotential generated and available for the BLYP calculations in the CP2K database, there is no Fe basis set in the GTH_BASIS_SETS. Could you provide one? Can it be generated with the new ATOM BASIS_OPTIMIZATION codebase? Would you please address the same issue for B3LYP (BASIS/PSEUDOPOTENTIAL_OPTIMIZATION availability and accuracy)? 
  Thank you,
