I have a table A with an int column ID that references table B column
ID. Table B has about 150k rows, and has an index on B.ID. When trying
to copy 1 million rows into A, I get the following \timings:


You're using 7.4.5. It's possible that you have a type mismatch in your foreign keys which prevents use of the index on B.
First of all, be really sure it's THAT foreign key, ie. do your COPY with only ONE foreign key at a time if you have several, and see which one is the killer.


        Then, supposing it's the column in A which REFERENCE's B(id) :

        SELECT id FROM A LIMIT 1;
        (check type)

        SELECT id FROM B LIMIT 1;
        (check type)

        EXPLAIN ANALYZE the following :

        SELECT * FROM B WHERE id = (SELECT id FROM A LIMIT 1);

        It should use the index. Does it ?
