It definitely is possible, and you should really read the WordPress Codex before diving in, and read it in-depth. It's very well documented and usually a simple Google search will bring up answers for many of your questions.

The WordPress Codex will explain everything for you, especially this page for your situation, regarding creating a theme. Pay attention to the template hierarchy as well to be able to customize certain pages without much work.

The Codex also has a Where to Start page that can be of tremendous use.

You can also check out other questions tagged with <theme-development> for many common questions that WP developers have.

All I can suggest is read, read, read!

Edit: This page is also a good read to begin. :)

Hope this helps!

Additionally, if it's purely iPad, you only need to cater to 2 static widths, makes it a whole lot easier in terms of media queries, image handling, etc. – Noel Tock Jan 27 '12 at 6:05
