While this works in theory, it has some major impacts on usability. The
most important one is that your workstations remains in state "building" as
long as QtCreator is running. Thus, no others can use your machine's CPUs
for IncrediBuilding, even if you do nothing else than having QtCreator
started. Furthermore, you don't have a chance to start any other instance
of QtCreator in the same way, e.g. because you want to use a second project
in a different context. ibConsole intercepts starting of Creator with the
message "Waiting for current build to complete...", until you close the
first instance.

I think my solution is doable, if it's guaranteed that the settings are all
the same and there is some kind of synchronization / locking. The latter is
still missing, however.
