1. Yes you are right you need two interfaces and IPS acts like bridge

2. IPS doesnt route between subnets and is used like transparent bridge - so you can place it between two computers in same network and its transparent for those PC

pc1 ----IPS ----pc2

BUT you can use also VLAN pairs - packets received on one of the paired VLANs are analyzed and then forwarded to the other VLAN in the pair.

so if it is in inline mode and i have a flat network, all conversations should pass thru my IPS.
