No one has mentioned that Ipe is one of those woods that will EAT HSS cutting edges for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and maybe a snack or two as well. Between that and the dirt, you might have to sharpen your planer knives a couple of times. Ipe also has a lot of oil in it and would most likely gum up a belt sander. I would probably buy a pack of sanding disks for my ROS and use that.
