Hi Ron, i purchased this one below from Amazon for my Canon Pixma ip100...
Trust Ultra Small Bluetooth 2.1 USB Adapter 10m BT-2400p
... It seems to work well, for the Android printer app I use 'PrintHand', and I think I chose the Canon Pixma ip5000, see video..
But I had also been advised to use the ix5000 prior using ip5000, although I found it the 'ix' printer driver didn't work for me.
All I had to do was plug in the 'bluetooth' dongle with the printer off, then turned the printer on, scanned for 'bluetooth' devices, then put in the passkey (either 0000, 1234, or 1111, i can't remember exactly), follow the instructions for adding the printer in the Android printer app.
What I found was whenever I wanted to print, i had to always tap in the BT passkey, but that was the only thing (kind of bug in suppose).
Hope this helps
