    If I'm not mistaken, the OP is making paper negatives, not prints, so the solution he's using to develop with may not work well for making regular enlargements.

    I found an Ilford product data guide (http://www.tmax100.com/photo/pdf/ilford.pdf page 60) that goes out of its way to say Multigrade IV RC Deluxe is NOT developer incorporated. They used the all caps NOT! However, this statement is not made for the other papers they make. I think the incorporated developer is used primarily to just speed up the development time and maybe tweek or stabilize the way the different emulsions work to create the mulitgrade function, but that is just a guess.

    Papers for use with an activator/stabilizer processor have a developer incorporated in the emulsion. Kodak RC papers did, Ilford does not.
