What is the URL of your IPB forum?

The IPB importer pulls the charset from IPB's database. Perhaps this is set incorrectly. I would like to look at your IPB forum to see what encoding it is using.

Are you saying that the import looks like it does in phpMyAdmin? In that case, you likely need to redo the import (restore to a pre-import state or reinstall XF) and choose the option to force a character set when starting up. First try:

latin1

If that doesn't resolve the issue (I suspect it will), you can try:

utf8
