I feel that I am missing something. Probably, because I am not using
ivy. For helm (which I am using), org-refile-get-location provides
filter-and-select interface automatically. So, I can get on-the-fly
filtering for id: link automatically. I just type `C-c C-l id: RET` and 
filter the candidates just like in org-refile. Do you need to call some
special function to use ivy with org-refile? If so, just replace
org-refile-get-location in my code with your ivy version. If you want to
go straight into inserting the link without a need to type `C-c C-l id:
RET`, you may just bind (insert "[[" (org-id-link-complete) "]]") to key
binding of your choice.

Best,
Ihor
