The bulk of IPF documentation is in INF format (online, but not on the web).
The IPF User's Guide and the IPF Reference are the two standard docs, and
should be available with the OS/2 Developer's Toolkit, as well as with the
various authoring environments (eg HyperWise or IPF Editor).

Based on a brief webcrawl, here's a couple of pages you might still find
interesting:

http://www.execpc.com/%7Edfranson/ipf.html
- The IPF Page. A pretty decent introduction, written by a writer who
uses IPF. Covers some general topics, the DLL's available for
customising your document, and links to some tools available.

http://www.ncia.com/%7Epcs/pcs_ovrv.html
- the IPF Editor 2.0 page (wasn't covered by the IPF page).
This editor has received good reviews from those who've used it.

Hope this helps,
