I haven't tested this, but I imagine that you'd need to quote or
escape any special characters:

ipa user-add user1 --password qwerty\&sdf

or

ipa user-add user1 --password "qwerty&sdf"

Other characters will cause problems too: 'greater than', less than,
single quote, double quote, tilde, pipe etc.

Hope this helps,

Dan
