In IPUMS USA counties can be identified via the COUNTY or COUNTYFIPS variables. These are two variables that identify counties using slightly different coding schemes. Do note, that in both cases in samples since 1950, counties are not completely identifiable for all households in the data. See this blog post for more detail on the identification of counties in public use microdata.
