Hi! I've just installed a F16 fresh.

I installed empathy-3.2.2-1.fc16.x8664 and telepathy-idle-0.1.10-1.fc16.x8664.

When i launch empathy, i see the Account Assistant screen. I choose 'No, i want a new account'

But the only option i have available in 'what kind of chat account do you want' is 'jabber'. The selection box shows no other options.

What's up with that? Anyone have any suggestions about how to fix things so i get irc account option?

I believe there is a bug with Empathy where the first account you create can't be an IRC account. Try creating a non-IRC account and then try adding a new account. The type should include IRC.
