Yes, that's true.

What do you think is expected?

python-ipython is a metapackage, that requires all other ipython-foo packages, so that you have the full functionality, when you install that one.

But when you want to install just the console you can install ipython-console without needing to install GTK. This feature is needed by many, who want to run ipython-console on a headless server without X.

I was surprised that when I removed python-ipython it did not remove the other packages.  But if you think this is normal behavior, I guess it's OK.

This is expected. To remove all ipython packages you could run:
yum remove python-ipython*

Closing as this is normal behavior.
