The end grain looks very porous in the picture, which isn’t typical of ipe, but is what you’d expect with a white oak that’s been stained. It also makes sense from an economic standpoint as white oak is relatively cheap and won’t rot.

If it’s stained, like I think it is, then you should test out the teak oil on a hidden area. It’s possible that the oil may cause issues with the stain.
