Iraizoz was born in Pamplona, Navarre. After beginning his football career with local UDC Chantrea, he moved to the Basque Country with Athletic Bilbao, serving stints with affiliates CD Baskonia and Bilbao Athletic.
Arriving at RCD Espanyol in July 2002, Iraizoz spent two seasons with its B-side, also having a loan spell at SD Eibar in the second division. He was the former's second-choice goalkeeper, behind Carlos Kameni, for the 2006–07 season, but was the regular in the club's runner-up run in the UEFA Cup. Despite being from Navarre, he learned to speak fluent Catalan.
On 7 August 2007 Iraizoz signed for Athletic Bilbao for €4.6 million, returning to the club he spent one 1/2 seasons with, this time as the undisputed starter. However, due to a severe injury, he was left out of the squad for the second part of the campaign, and his place (and shirt number) was taken by 37-year-old Armando, signed from Cádiz CF until June 2008.
In the following years, Iraizoz rarely missed a game in La Liga for Athletic. On 16 January 2010, his man-of-the-match performance helped the team hold on to its early home lead against Real Madrid, constantly denying Kaká and Cristiano Ronaldo's efforts.
