"Slow" SSH is (in my experience, anyway) usually a DNS problem.  Are
you using IPA for DNS, or external?  Either way, is reverse DNS

I had an issue recently with users complaining about slow logins, but
it turned out that bind on my primary IPA box died (I have no idea
how.)  Since resolv.conf goes in order, it would hit the primary, time
out, then fail over to the other DNS servers.  Once I restarted bind
everything was fine again.  I'm still investigating what happened, but
there's only so much time in a day.

As for auth mechanisms -- those are defined in your sshd_config, but
why would you want to turn that off?  That's the whole point of IPA.
I'm probably misunderstanding something, though. :)
