After playing for clubs like NiTel United Lagos and won the highest goal scorer award with Julius Berger FC in the Nigerian Premier League, he joined Swedish club Malmö FF in 2001. He was the top scorer in Allsvenskan in 2002 with 24 goals. In 2003, he suffered a leg injury that kept him out of most of the season, but he still managed to come back strongly and finished with 10 goals.
In 2005 Ijeh moved to Danish club FC Copenhagen and won the league title in 2005–06 season.
On 19 June 2006, Ijeh moved to Viking FK in Norway on a 3 million Danish krone deal. He became an instant success, scoring 11 goals in 15 games to save the team from relegation. In the last game of the 2006 season Ijeh scored 4 goals and pressured an opposition defender to concede an own goal as Viking surprisingly demolished local rivals and second-placed S.K. Brann 5–0 to climb two places in the table and thus escape relegation on goal difference.
In early January 2007, several sources within Norwegian football claimed that Ijeh would soon be looking for another club, with English Championship side Coventry City courting the Nigerian striker, who was thought to be keen to test his skills in the more physical English game. Coventry City manager Micky Adams was thought to have watched the player on a recent scouting trip to Norway.
Oslo-based club Lyn Fotball reportedly made a NOK 12 million bid for Ijeh's services, though this was rejected from Viking. Ijeh left Viking at the end of the 2009 season to sign for Syrianska FC in the Swedish second division.
On 23 October Ijeh scored two goals in the game that took Syrianska to Allsvenskan for the first time ever. He finished the season with 17 goals. He also scored Syrianska FC's first Allsvenskan goal, after a mistake by the Gefle IF defence allowed him to roll the ball into an empty net.
After two seasons in Syrianska, Ijeh left the club for Allsvenskan rivals GAIS where he took over the number nine shirt.
Ijeh studied at Gothenburg University and the Swedish Football Federation (SvFF) and acquired a UEFA advanced licensed certificate. He is also a technical and tactical soccer coach.
Ijeh took over Assyriska BK in November 2013 as a head coach.
