You need the ASA to pass traffic through the IPS as explained in

Note that since this is a different module you will need something like

access-list ips-acl extended permi ip any any 

class-map ips-class
match access-list ips-acl

policy-map global_policy
class ips-class
  ips fail-open

service-policy global_policy global

Then you can start configuring the ips following its config guide to fire on signatures etc.

I hope it helps.
