Per PEP 394 [1], scripts are not supposed to reference python, but rather python2 or python3 as appropriate. Please change the line

python install --prefix=/usr --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=0

in IPython's PKGBUILD to

python3 install --prefix=/usr --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=0

The build process will then use python3, regardless of what the user has python aliased to. This will also set the shebangs in the various scripts provided by ipython to /usr/bin/python3 instead of /usr/bin/python.
