After one season at senior level in Bosnia, Ibričić left to play for Croatian side NK Zagreb. He established himself as one of the club's best players, and soon attracted interest from bigger clubs in Croatia. He was transferred to Hajduk in 2008 for €1.8 million.
In April 2010 Ibričić scored against Dinamo Zagreb, Hajduk's biggest rivals, for the second time in his career. The goal sent Hajduk to the final of the Croatian Cup with a narrow 1–0 aggregate scoreline. He scored again in both the legs of the final and thereby won his first trophy for the club. He finished the 2009–10 season with 17 goals, only behind Davor Vugrinec in the Prva HNL. He was voted the best player in the Croatian League and received the Sportske novosti Yellow Shirt award for the 2009–10 season. This was the first time since 1992 that a Hajduk Split player got the prestigious award. He also won the 2009–10 fans' player of the year award, the Heart of Hajduk.
In late August 2010 he was linked with a possible move to Turkish side Galatasaray. According to media reports, Gaziantepspor offered €6.5 million to Hajduk, but the offer was turned down, with former Hajduk president Joško Svaguša saying that the minimum transfer fee for Ibričić would be in the region of €10 million.
On 13 January 2011, he was transferred to Russian club FC Lokomotiv Moscow for a reported fee of around €7 million. Hajduk will also receive 20% of Ibričić's next transfer sum. He scored his first goal for Lokomotiv from the penalty spot in a league match against FC Krasnodar.
On 4 January 2013, Ibričić moved on loan to Kasımpaşa S.K..
Ibričić established himself in the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina when his former coach at NK Zagreb, Miroslav Blažević became the national team's manager. He participated in each of Bosnia's 12 games in their 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign (10 in the regular qualification, and 2 playoff games). He scored his first goal for the national team in a friendly against Bulgaria. He also scored against Estonia in a record-breaking 7–0 victory in Zenica. As of 21 July 2014, Ibričić has retired from international football for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
