I would focus on creating an environment where metasploit actually works (i.e. you can exploit an unpatched box). Then you can focus on IDS.

yes, but can anyone give a sample or a detailed example on how IPS stops a working exploit with metasploit or any other software

I have used metasploit to trigger alarms in promiscuous mode, but not inline. It's pretty much the same though. Get metasploit working. go through the list of available metasploit exploits and choose one that is:

1) exploitable on the test machine

2) detected by Cisco IPS

Test the exploit without IPS. One you have verified that it is working(during my test, I was creating a local user on a Windows box), test the exploit with IPS.
