Shouldn't this have been QIpbe' tlhIngan'pu?

No, but {QIpbe' tlhInganpu'} might.

Sorry, typo! So, is this an error to be reported?

Not sure, I'd defer to the mods. It's not wrong as the plural suffixes tend to be optional somewhat, but might not be a "best" translation due to its apparently ambiguous nature.

Quite true; the "main" lookup here was QIpbe' tlhInganpu'., but QIpbe' tlhIngan. was marked as a "best" translation, which can potentially cause issues with back-translation.

I've demoted QIpbe' tlhIngan. to an accepted translation.
