Because of their un-neutral charges, are cations and anions more favorable for polar bonds, or does it not make a difference?

I think if it involves cations and anions its an ionic bond, and polar bonding refers to covalent bonds between elements in their neutral states. The bond is only polar because elements have different electronegativities.
