In brief: Yes, but not needed
Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen are both capable of relieving pain and reducing fever.
So there is no need to use them together right from the start. It is generally safe to combine these two drugs, but usually unnecessary. Consider using medicated lozenges to relieve your sore throat.
