It is possible, though not usually a good idea having already asked creditors to agree to an IVA. You would need to fail the IVA first and then try to negotiate the DMP. On failure of the IVA creditors will add back lost interest and missed payment charges and your debt could increase somewhat. They would also be free to commence collection / enforcement procedures and under no obligation to entertain the proposed DMP payments.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I agree that it might not be a good idea to do that as you may end up owing more than you did originally. As stated, you are unlikely to be able to release equity at the end.
