I would like to open ID links [[id:...]] in a new window. I can make file
links [[file:...]] open in a new window by running (add-to-list
'org-link-frame-setup '(file . find-file-other-window)), but this doesn't
seem to affect the behavior of ID links.

Thanks,
Alan

Here's the full definition of org-id-open:

  (defun org-id-open (id _)
    "Go to the entry with id ID."
    (org-mark-ring-push)
    (let ((m (org-id-find id 'marker))
          cmd)
      (unless m
        (error "Cannot find entry with ID \"%s\"" id))
      ;; Use a buffer-switching command in analogy to finding files
      (setq cmd
            (or
             (cdr
              (assq
<1>            (cdr (assq 'file org-link-frame-setup))
               '((find-file . switch-to-buffer)
                 (find-file-other-window . switch-to-buffer-other-window)
                 (find-file-other-frame . switch-to-buffer-other-frame))))
             'switch-to-buffer-other-window))
<2>   (if (not (equal (current-buffer) (marker-buffer m)))
          (funcall cmd (marker-buffer m)))
      (goto-char m)
      (move-marker m nil)
      (org-show-context)))

So org-id-open does look at org-link-frame-setup (<1>), though that's
only in effect when the target isn't in the current buffer (<2>).

Are you observing the behavior you describe when the target is in
another buffer?
