Ion dipole?

Is the interaction between the hydrogen on the water molecule and the iodine a weak ion-dipole interaction?? I know they are insoluble in water.

I wouldn't say so, since strictly speaking both the iodine in I-I are neutral, while H in H2O carries a small positive charge. You could, however, mention dipole-dipole interaction.
