What you are trying to do is a normal operation of the router. But since I don't have a iPad i have absolutely no idea if you can use IPSec from your iPad to your home network via the WRV200.
I asked my cousin to buy a similar router, the RVS4000. (If he purchased a router today, I would have asked him to buy a RV120W.)
He is in Australia and I live in Raleigh in the USA. I VPN into his LAN using the free Quick VPN client and manage his Local Area network. I must admit I used a Dynamic DNS service for DNS resolution of my cousins WAN IP address. It work very very well.

it simplifies manual conversion of a WAP with a static ip address to a
