In brief: See below

Taking Ibuprofen with alcohol is acceptable as long as you follow the dosing and frequency recommendations.
However, there are risks related to irritation of the lining of the stomach and the risks increase if you drink more than recommended and take more than the recommended amounts of ibuprofen. If kidney problems, don't take Ibuprofen unless advise by your doc.
