A self-employed person is allowed to make a contribution to a regular IRA in addition to a SEP-IRA. The SEP and the regular traditional IRA can be put in the same account. Instead of a regular traditional IRA it would make more sense for your dad to open a Roth IRA, which would be a separate account from his SEP. Yes, he is allowed, at his income level, to both put $3500 into the Roth and whatever the figure may be into his SEP.
Best wishes, Chris
