Sorry I don't have a solution for your real problem.  But I just want to
check, you are aware that you can install the actual printer driver for
the printer in Windows instead of the Cups driver?  If you use Samba
printer sharing to Windows instead of cups, you can even install the
Windows drivers in Linux so Windows will automatically find and download
them as needed.

Windows IPP support is.... pathetic at best.  (compared to the printing
nervana that is Linux and Mac networking.)
