There's a few options you can look at, if you want all internet bound traffic to pass through the IPS/FW, simply place a default route on the core pointing to the firewall that connects to the internet edge router. All traffic will be subject to inspection.

Inline placement is also a consideration. The below is a guide focused more on standalone IPS, but you could make it work with the IPS module in the firewall:
