I'm wondering why you need this very long names with the double @-sign.
Typically you should be able to use aduser@AD.DOMAIN or ADSHORT\aduser
as you have to do with Windows when accessing trusted forests.

You can put AD groups into IPA groups via a special IPA group you can
create with the --external option. To this group you can add an AD group
and then you can put this group into any other IPA POSIX group. Now you
can use this IPA POSIX group to grant access to all IPA and AD users
which are members of the related groups.
