Well.. yes. Although games have even higher demands on response speed than video editing and watching does. Video editing I suppose have demands on image quality too, moreso than games.
As for response speed in video editing I dont think IPS will be a problem. VA might be a problem for response speed. IPS might be a problem with image quality. But these 'might' statements all depend on your own perception.
If you see and like a VA panel but you dont think the response speed is good enough, you might want to look into the new type of panels arriving at the market this year. Theyre called overdrive VA panels. They are VA panels with some technical updating trick to get 12 ms response time instead of the common 25 ms. Models are available from Eizo like L778 and L578. There is also a Samsung model 193P+ (or 194P in some places) that will be arriving soon. Other brands might also have them soon.
Mind that a 25 ms IPS might have as good percieved moving image response time as another montior with alot faster response time.. something like 16 ms perhaps. So if you like the feeling of IPS it still might be a choice even if overdrive VA panels might sound like a superior option when you look purely technically at it.
