Open the .csproj file for the iOS app project in a text editor and then add the following lines at the end (immediately before the closing </Project> tag):


<Target Name="CopyIpa"
    Condition="'$(OutputType)' == 'Exe'
        And '$(ComputedPlatform)' == 'iPhone'
        And '$(BuildIpa)' == 'true'
        And '$(TF_BUILD)' == 'true'">
