So is ionic an inter and intramolecular force?

Ionic is an intramolecular force (between ions), intermolecular forces refer to forces between molecules and ions such as dipole-dipole or hydrogen bonding.

Because ionic forces occur when two atoms with charge come together, it is an intramolecular interaction.

Ionic bonds are classified as bonds similarly to covalent bonds meaning that they are intramolecular forces. When two oppositely charged ions interact, they form a bond and become one molecule so the attractive force is within that molecule rather than between two (hence, it is intramolecular). Conversely, when two polar molecules interact, dipole-dipole forces connect them. Dipole-dipole forces (and hydrogen bonds) are not bonds so they are considered intermolecular forces rather than intramolecular forces.

Ionic and covalent forces are intramolecular forces.

Intramolecular forces are the forces that hold atoms together within a molecule (covalent, ionic bonds). Intermolecular forces are forces that exist between molecules (dipole-dipole, hydrogen bonding, London dispersion interactions).

It is an intramolecular force!
