IPC is a generic concept. It's not particular to Hive. In fact several hadoop service communicate this way.

https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/ipc

Using IPC, clients can connect to Server components at a certain port and invoke methods exposed by a server.

See properties related to ipc.client here : https://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.8.0/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-common/core-default.xml
