I'm under the impression that
     $ pip install --use-wheel --no-index --find-links=/local_download_dir
    $ pip install --use-wheel --no-index --find-links=hosting_url ipython
should both work. But I've been running into multiple issues so far - from
having to upgrade pip itself and having to manually remove setuptools to
having no wheel-2.7 command (when "wheel" is the 2.6 version).

I've uploaded numpy and scipy wheels plus your set at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy/files/wheels_to_test/. I'll start a
new thread with a request for testing.
