For profile other than default, it should be created :

$ ipython profile create foofoobar
[ProfileCreate] Generating default config file: u'/Users/bussonniermatthias/.ipython/profile_foofoobar/ipython_config.py'
[ProfileCreate] Generating default config file: u'/Users/bussonniermatthias/.ipython/profile_foofoobar/ipython_qtconsole_config.py'
[ProfileCreate] Generating default config file: u'/Users/bussonniermatthias/.ipython/profile_foofoobar/ipython_notebook_config.py'

`default` is different because of available config options and default values. 
Nothing is created before actually needing it. Otherwise the default files that contains comments with default values might not be updated
on IPython upgrade and that confuses People that edit old example config files with old values. 

There is a recent issue on that :
