If you are wanting to have an ion in a specific binding site on the
protein, and you make the particular parameters for the ion bound residues
which have a fake bond to the ion (this is one of the recommended methods
of simulating ions in active sites for example) then this could still work
in implicit solvent. If on the other hand you want to have free ions
moving around, I don't think that is likely to work well.
If you just want to change the ionic strength because you are looking for
some general ionic strength effect, there is a parameter to do this.
