However, afaqi can perform ifrad. (Rafiq-ul-haramayn,page: 37 and 38)

اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنِّیْ اُرِیْدُ الْحَجَّ فَیَسِّرْہُ لِیْ وَتَقَبَّلْہُ مِنِّیْ نَوَیْتُ الْحَجَّ وَاَحْرَمْتُ بِہ مُخْلِصًا لِّلّٰہِ تَعَالٰی 
Translation of the intention : Oh Allah the glorified! I intend for haj and you make this easy for me and accept this from me and help me in this, and make this blessed and abounding for me.  I intend  for  haj and  wear this ihram exclusively for  Allah, the glorified.
