Strictly speaking, it is not Ipe that crops the drawing, but the PDF 
viewer or whatever you use to postprocess the drawing, based on the 
presence of a CropBox in the document.

You can stop Ipe from including this CropBox by setting the "crop" 
attribute in the layout to "no".   E.g. include this little style file 
'nocrop.isy' in your document:

<ipestyle name="nocrop">
<layout paper="595 842" origin="0 0" frame="595 842" crop="no" />
