While you are correct about pin to pin skew for differential pins,
the original question was “skew between pins of different drivers”, which
is not supported by IBIS.

Subject: [ibis] Re: Skew between Data and clock pins in IBIS standard
The IBIS [Diff Pin] keyword, which associates two pins as members of a
differential pair, does provide for typ, min and max tdelay for drivers. An
example from the specification:
[Diff Pin] inv_pin vdiff tdelay_typ tdelay_min tdelay_max
3 4 150mV -1ns 0ns -2ns
The usage is explained as:
The fourth, fifth, and sixth columns, tdelay_typ, tdelay_min, and tdelay_max,
contain launch delays of the non-inverting pins relative to the inverting pins.
All of the numerical entries may be a positive, zero, or negative number.
Walter correctly points out that IBIS lacks much of the data necessary for full
timing analysis. However, it does provide for driver skew.

Subject: [ibis] Skew between Data and clock pins in IBIS standard
Hope u are fine,i have a question about if the IBIS standard can support any
information about skew between pins of different drivers in the same component.
In my case , it is required to get the skew between clock and data pins .
