This is what I have in my emacs config file:

(require 'ipython)
(setq py-python-command-args '("-pylab" "-p" "pylab" "-colors" "LightBG"))

This is equivalent to the command line:

ipython -pylab -p pylab -colors LightBG

Note the double pylab in my case is because I want _both_ the -pylab 
integration, and to load a profile called 'pylab' where I configure a bunch of 
personal tweaks.
