I am taking over a customer, and they want to know about the potential of a IDS/IPS

with their ASA5505.  But, I can't tell if it's default or an additional license.

I have this problem too.

The way I have come to understand it, there is a basic set of signatures, DOS Attacks, etc., that are included, but the fancier application layer stuff is additional, correct?

Not really, there are no basic signature on the ASA itself. ASA has inspection engine for a few protocols but it has different functionality to IPS inspection engine. Here is the ASA inspection if you are interested:

In regards to DOS attacks, there is basic threat detection in ASA, and here is the URL for your reference:

Hope that helps.
