If you use openembedded, you can create a bitbake recipe that inherit
'distutils', you can have a look at tichy .bb file for example [0]

But of course if your project is python only, it is probably a better
idea to do without openembedded.
ipk are in the same format than .deb, so you may just try to follow the
debian packaging tutorial [1]
