No worries, I'm just trying to avoid giving bad advice.

A CA is not optional with IPA. We use it to secure the XML-RPC interface
and initial replication agreements. You may not need additional cert
capabilities right now but the base  IPA install does.

It won't be pleasant if you lose the ability to issue certificates. It
may be worthwhile running through the steps in a test set up to be sure
things work as outlined.
