The kind of behaviour you're looking for is precisely what is offered  
by XeTeX: direct UTF-8 input, and direct use of 0S-X-installed fonts.

I know nothing about IPA alphabet myself, but I think some hints have  
been given about it on the XeTeX mailing list <http://tug.org/mailman/

I suppose this is the comp.text.tex newsgroup. I practically never  
used it myself, but Google offers a convenient interface avoiding  
having to set up a newsgroup reader beforehand <http://
