You can use the %clear magic command:

[c:/ipython]|28> %clear?
    Clear various data (e.g. stored history data)

%clear out - clear output history
%clear in  - clear input history
%clear shadow_compress - Compresses shadow history (to speed up ipython)
%clear shadow_nuke - permanently erase all entries in shadow history
%clear dhist - clear dir history
