You may want to check on whether IB even accepts retirement accounts. If I remember correctly, they don't.

The other thing to consider is that IB does charge a minimum fee per month. If you make one or two trades per month, then it makes sense compared to brokers that charge $10 per trade. They also charge extra for things like market data, but I use my ameritrade account to get this type of information.

As for SSL, I made a purchase of 30 and 35 shares. The only issues with having to buy 100 share increments was purchasing on the Tokyo stock exchange, but that is an exchange issue and not a broker issue.
