If the IDP supports SAML properly I don't see a reason why this
shouldn't work. (And IDP-initiated vs. SP-initiated probably doesn't
factor into this at all.)

IDP-initiated just means using a proprietary request to the IDP
instead of a standard SAML2.0 request. I.e., it's not defined in the
SAML specification and since the IDP here is not Shibboleth this is
also not a question for Shibboleth (but for the IDP).
