Robby Joe, Welcome to the wonderful world of bow building. I have never used Ipe but i can tell you Red Oak makes a great bow. You are on the right site to to get the best info and assistance from these guys. Many years of experience here and they all share their knowledge freely.

Board bows are a lot of fun to make. Like others have said, straight grain. Some times hard to find at my local big box stores. Take your time and have fun. I learn something new with each bow I make.
