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.
