No, you can't, at least under Linux:

planck[~]> head -1 `which ipython`
#!/usr/bin/env python -S
planck[~]> ipython
/usr/bin/env: python -S: No such file or directory

Shebang lines under linux don't admit parameters.  I don't know if
this is a linux quirk or a POSIX requirement.  You can make an alias
for this startup mode, though.
