IPA text may be classified as using Latin script, in some formal
definition of “scripts,” but IPA was really created as a notation that
liberally uses Latin letters, Greek letters, and new made-up characters
that have no natural home (though many of them might be classified as
munged Latin letters, therefore as “Latin” in a broad sense).

Yes, under the existing constraint that each writing system must be
classified as belonging to one “script.”
