I fixed up an old trek 930 with a fixed gear hub runninig a 42x13. i just noticed that the new cheap stx crank that i bought for this project has a sticker with"IG chain only" . i am running a HG chain. since i dont shift does it really matter what chain i use? am i going to have problems?

The HG and IG designation assumes that you want to shift. Since you have a single speed you will be fine either way.
