Scott Forstie, a DB2 developer, spoke at our user group last year. It was referred to as "IBM DB2 for i" or just "DB2 for i".

To address Justin's "mouthful" comment: If you leave off the "IBM",
it's not too long: just five syllables. "DB2/400" is pronounced with
six. I'll grant that "for eye" doesn't roll off the tongue as well as
"four hundred", though. So for me it's about a wash, from a pure
pronunciation standpoint.
