I wouldn't recommend duplicating your users, pick one and use that. If
you want to be able to manage your users, groups, HBAC, sudo, etc.
centrally then you'll want the users in IPA. But if you leave them
locally you may end up with corner case problems.

If you *do* end up adding your local users to IPA then yeah, you've got
a decision to make. Either your use the existing UID/GID which is
probably fine (though you may want to look adding a local range) or you
let IPA assign a new UID from its own range, then you have to quickly
change file ownership on all enrolled systems.
