I don't know what Iron Python is,
but I'm using embedded Python in Delphi (which is quit comparable to 
VB)  for about a year now,
and it's indeed a fabulous great combination:
- the GUI power of Delphi
- the scripting and numerical power of Python / SciPy
I would say much more powerful than MatLab,
and even be more powerful than LabView.
