Is it possible to convert IP Board Groups to Xenforo?
User Groups are imported from IPB, but 3rd party social groups are not. The pre-sales FAQ in my signature has a list of what is / isn't imported for ipb.
Thanks for the quick response. I see that the Social Groups will not be imported.
Any other way to do this?
XenForo does not ship with social groups and they'll need to be added via custom development or an add-on.
I am coming from Ipb myself too. And I plan to write a Social Groups Add on with an importer to bring over the Ipb Social Groups data. When it ready I will post it at the Resource Manager.
You have estimated date of completion of this addon?
Thank you very much for letting me know about this. The Social Group is really important to us.
There are a number of Social Group add-ons already:
You may be able to work with one of the authors of the existing ones to build a IP Board social groups importer. A couple of them already have VB social group importers.

Please note, I cannot personally recommend any of the above add-ons as I have not used them myself, but hopefully between wang and the others you'll find a solution
I do not have an exact date yet. But it would be probably faster for you to purchase one of the Social Groups add ons posted above, and ask its developer if they would be willing to add an converter for Ipb 's Social groups.
