We're using a clear (with UV screen and mildew protection) water based product from

Thompsons called "Advanced Wood Protector" 

Ipe is so dense that oil based products have a very hard penetrating the surface. This product went on very easily and seemed to get good penetration (for ipe). One person rolled on a light even coat, working it into the surface, then the other came along and back brushed.
