i use F5 and 3 IPA servers no big issues but some notes :
1) as note you cant use it for  kerberos
2) for the DNS we use group and not L/B do to the zone serial (the zone
serial num is not geting sync so if you round robin you will get deferent
zone num evey time and it will mess up  zone sync to external dns servers)
3) for the  GUI (443) make sure to use stickiness  so the user wont get
bounce after the login
