This doesn't sound like a wash sale, I think it's 2 separate transactions.

Transactions that occur within an IRA account don't need to be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Buy and sell all the stocks and bonds you want to in the IRA --- there are no capital gains or capital losses that need to be addressed. What does need to be addressed are sales resulting in a distribution out of a traditional IRA. When this happens, the IRA custodian records the distribution by sending you and the IRS a Form 1099-R to determine the taxes.
