There are old papers that used CPS which didn’t use IPUMS. Their methods and variables are quite different.

IPUMS CPS, in its current form, began around 2006. Since then the project has grown to include more and more CPS variables. CPS data was previously (and still is) available from the Census Bureau as well as NBER. More information about IPUMS CPS is available here.
