Everything is redirected excepted the home page, why please?
Those scripts don't do the forum index. But you can add a rewrite rule to your .htaccess file in the old IPB directory:

RewriteRule ^$ /xenforo/? [R=301,L]
If you put this in the .htaccess file in the old IPB directory then it will redirect the index URL (e.g. yoursite.com/ipb/) to yoursite.com/xenforo/
