Ang "IBA" isang maliit na punong kahoy na ang kaanyuan ay kawangis ng "kalamyas". Ang tanging pagkaka-iba ay ang hugis ng bunga, ang kalamyas ay isa hanggang dalawang pulgada ang haba at hugis habilog samantalang ang "IBA" ay bilog tulad ng ubas, kapwa maasim, luntiang mura at kumpol ang bunga, maari itong paasim at ilahok sa inumin.Dahil sa karamihan ng puno ng "IBA" sa pamayanan ang mga mamamayan dito ay tinawag na mga taga-Ibaan na nangangahulugang taga-roon sa lugar na maraming puno ng "IBA".
A rising commercial town, home of small business owner and industrialists, the pride of the province of Batangas. When it comes to people they are conscious enough of what they can do to improve their way of life.
Ibaan, then, was only a barrio or a part of the town of Batangas, now Batangas City. In the year 1780, the first Poblacion was in Matala, now a barrio of Ibaan, four kilometers away from the said town. In 1832, many dwellers liked that the Poblacion be transferred and was formally separated from the town of Batangas. The so called "Principalia" was the basic form of government then had its organization and the leaders like the Gobernadorcillo, Cabeza de Barangay and other officials exercised their power and duties. The organization of the principalia was accompanied with the establishment of the provincial church.
Local historians claim that the place now known as the Municipality of Ibaan was heavily forested by "Iba" trees. The Iba tree is very similar to the "calamias" tree in structure. The only difference between "Iba" and "calamias" fruits are their shapes. Iba fruits are round while calamias fruits are oblong but both fruits grow in clusters. The early settlers of this place called it "Ibaan" meaning the place where "Iba" abounds.
