Please have look at the manual.  Instead of editing the Ipe file, make a
new style sheet, say "gridsizes.isy".

Then add that style sheet to your document.

You can do that with Shift+Ctrl+S (Edit -> Style Sheets) for an existing
document, or by starting Ipe with

ipe -sheet gridsizes.isy

to create a new document (http://ipe.otfried.org/manual/manual_48.html).

Or you can add "gridsizes" to "prefs.basic"
(http://ipe.otfried.org/manual/manual_39.html), then it will
automatically be added to every new document from now on.
