Yes, you need to configure the pipe to *do* something.. otherwise it's a
pipe that just collects packets :-)
you can do it in two commands like this:

  ipfw add 100 pipe 1 ip from 192.168.1.5 to any
  ipfw config pipe 1 bw 0

'bw 0' means tuse unlimited bandwidth (ie, all your availible bandwidth).
You can change this to a different amount, eg to limit to 5Kbytes/s:

  ipfw add 100 pipe 1 ip from 192.168.1.5 to any
  ipfw config pipe 1 bw 5KBytes/s

Packets should then flow through naturally.
