Many girls like him, but two known are Ginger (but no more) and Miranda. It's a running gag that every time he appears, music plays most likely in Ginger's head due to her possibly overwhelming crush on him.
The main episodes Ian was in were Dare I, Darren?, The 'A' Ticket, and Piece of My Heart. In Dare I, Darren?, he was somewhat Miranda's date to the movies, but she really wanted to make Ginger try to like Darren, when she liked Ian as a way for Miranda to get Ian all for herself. In The 'A' Ticket, Ginger and him are paired in science class. Since Ginger was a science geek, he was happy to have her as his partner, and keep his B average. He grew closer to her and gave her his soccer jacket.
Darren found out about him using Ginger and warned her to stop doing his work. In Piece of My Heart, Ginger wanted to go with him but Miranda asked him out right in front of her. He was mentioned a lot in Season of Caprice as Ginger's boyfriend from Courtney, which caused drama between Ginger and Sasha. In seasons 2 and 3, he faded and became a background character. However, in About Face he was mentioned by Joann ("Josie") as she was talking to the popular girls in the bathroom.

While paired together in science during "The 'A' Ticket", Ian used her to get better grades and was so happy, her gave her his soccer jacket. Ginger gave up on Ian during season 2.
Miranda Killgallen: Miranda also liked Ian and even wrote his name all over her notebook. In "Dare I, Darren" she choose Ian over Mipsy, who she came with, to go in with her.
