Howe is hopeful Bournemouth can kick on after getting their first points of the campaign.
Winger Ibe has struggled since arriving at Bournemouth from Liverpool for £15m in 2016, but he also made the first goal with a clever backheel to Andrew Surman, who coolly stroked in.
"5,977 days since my last Bournemouth goal", Defoe tweeted, "and it feels just as good".
Eddie Howes' charges enjoyed most of the possession in the first half, but they were unable to make it count as the likes of Jermaine Defoe and Joshua King fired blanks. He can beat people in really tight areas and he did that for the two goals.
"He's an unbelievable professional. He wants to train every day and doesn't want to be treated as a special case, he wants to muck in with the boys".
BOURNEMOUTH will be looking for their first win of the season as they welcome south coast rivals Brighton to the Vitality Stadium.
"(I am) incredibly disappointed.
"I knew we'd be under pressure in the last periods of the game, that's normal away from home", said Hughton. We never looked like conceding before then.
All in all, we are getting a pretty good price on Bournemouth to win this game and as a result I am going suggest that betting on the outright result as the best option.
"This is the first meeting between these two coastal clubs since April 2015, but there won't be a long wait until the next match as they face each other again in the EFL Cup on Tuesday".
