I love the end results of ipe, but it is a monster to work with. A 7 1/4 blade is a good idea for a couple reasons. Thinner kerf will require less from your tablesaw and cheaper blade because you probably will want to have a couple. Little advice if you need to use a router on it all, pay very close attention to the grain direction and take light passes. A little grab tends to take big chunks out of the edge.
