Just FYI, in the latest use-package (on github) you can now say:

  (use-package ido
    :bind ("C-b" . ido-switch-buffer)
    :custom ((ido-enable-flex-matching t)
             (ido-create-new-buffer 'always)
             (ido-use-url-at-point nil)
             (ido-use-filename-at-point nil)
             ;; Disable auto searching for files unless called explicitly   
             (ido-auto-merge-delay-time 99999)
             ;; Avoid "size too big" errors
             (ido-max-directory-size 300000)
             ;; Always propose old buffers as well
             (ido-use-virtual-buffers nil)
             ;; Don't remember history
             (ido-enable-last-directory-history nil))
    (ido-mode t)
    (ido-everywhere t))

Which uses custom-set-variables under the hood, taking advantage of any :set
functions related to those variables.
