I know the concensus is that IBS pain is worse in a morning but I tend to get mine at night. I haven't yet had an official diagnosis. Does this mean what I am feeling is indeed not IBS?

Hello,  IBS is different for everyone..  Most people are worse in the morning..  I happen to be one of the lucky ones who has it in the morning and at night..  What are your symptoms??  Have you gone to a gastro yet??  If not that is a place to start..  They will do some testing to rule out other illness..  IBS is a diagnosis..  They need to rule out Chrons,IBD,ulcerative colitis and gallbladder issues..  You should do a food diary..  Alot of IBS'ers have issues with dairy.. Try to see what bothers you and iliminate it and see if you do better..  Hope you find a answer..

Mine is usually worse at night, too, although when i have issues with D, it usually happens in the morning. My main complaint is gas and bloating, which does get worse at night, and i have more reflux issues at night as well, which combined with the gas sometimes makes me nauseated. I don't think that IBS is definitive enough to be determined on what time of day you have it - it's different for everybody.

The process of IBS diagnosing consists of elimination other conditions with similar symptoms. There is no test to determine IBS because there are no structural or biochemical abnormalities. So it may take a time to be diagnosed with IBS.
