Does IBS turn into colitis?

No: There is no evidence that IBS causes or will turn into colitis. The major difference between ulcerative colitis and IBS is that ulcerative colitis causes visible inflammation and sores along the top lining of the large intestine and rectum, whereas in IBS there is no visible tissue inflammation.
