Do ionic bonds ever have dipole moments?

Ionic bonds can have dipole moments.

Yes, dipole moments can occur in ions. A dipole moment occurs when there is a difference in electronegativity, and greater differences produce larger dipole moments. Since there is a difference in electronegativity between ions, then there is a dipole moment.

Yes, sometimes one of the atoms need the electron more than the other and it creates a partial charge among the atoms.

Yes, for example in KF. F is extremely electronegative, so it will pull electron's closer making it more negatively charged. Therefore, the K will be more positively charged and a dipole moment will occur.

Yes dipole moments can happen in ionic bonds. For example when there's an obvious difference in electronegativity between ions there can be dipole moments.
