I'm inclined to disagree with your thoughts, unless you can provide clear
evidence why IBSS would be used instead of BSS. Besides, I still can't find
an option to choose the host with which I want to connect in either BSS or
IBSS mode. It would appear such an option does not exist.

typically point to point connections are done in IBSS mode.
