Ibarra began his career at CF Monterrey, where after spending several years in the youth squads, made his debut at the professional level on February 10, 2002 in a game against Celaya. In his first full game, Ibarra made a favorable impression by shutting out Chivas by a score of 3–0. His initial success prompted then-coach, José Treviño, to name him the starter. Ibarra responded by allowing 21 goals in 12 games. However, the following season he would be benched, only seeing action in two games. The next season, Ibarra filled in for starting goalkeeper Ricardo Martínez in 11 games, while Martínez recovered from an injury. Juan de Dios stepped up to the challenge and allowed only 14 goals in that span. However, when Martínez returned, Ibarra was relegated to the bench and watched from the sidelines as Monterrey won the championship that very season, under Argentine coach Daniel Passarella.
After two more years of scattered play at CF Monterrey, he was transferred to América before the start of the Apertura 2005 season, where he was placed as second on the depth chart, behind Guillermo Ochoa. His only start that season came against his former team, in a game where he allowed all four goals in a 4–1 loss.
He returned to his first team CF Monterrey on December 21, 2007, but only played for their Primera A filial team. Ibarra later went on to play for Alacranes de Durango in 2008. For the start of the Clausura 2009 tourney, he was transferred to Jaibos Tampico Madero.
Ibarra was transferred yet again for the Apertura 2009 season, this time to Lobos BUAP.
In 2010 Ibarra returned to Monterrey for the Apertura 2010 season.
