IPS afaik has to be used by target the rearmost mob in the line you're hoping to hit.
I find that binding 'last target' to a convenient key, I can hit that and usually hard target one of the mobs at the back of a pack.
I've never seen IPS shots carry on through their intended target on to ones behind.
Edit: I have to say, with the change to precise shot and archer's focus, I do have some sympathy for the view that IPS is not as important as its made out to be. 30% damage increase is very nice, and lining up mobs for IPS can be a pain. Overall, whilst IPS really shines in some situations, archer's focus is likely to be better sustained dps most of the time.
That said, theres no feat I'd replace IPS with that is better for an artificer. Additionally, the dex requirement of 19 is something you'd want to be hitting anyway in order to maintain a decent ranged AB. So its a very good feat with no real opportunity cost to the ranged arti, and as such should be taken for those situations where it shines.
