No.

You're correct that Ivanpah Airport was never intended to "replace" McCarran. The plan was to build the new airport with two parallel runways (oriented north/south) and a modern, midfield terminal as the primary Vegas airport. McCarran would have seen the elimination of the A/B/C gates, runways 1R/1L, and Terminal 2, becoming more of a regional airport, similar to Chicago Midway, Dallas Love, Houston Hobby, and others.

All of this is moot presently, of course, as the project was put on indefinite hold back in June.
