it sounds a little unlikely. The bowel spasms in IBS are literally happening in the bowel itself, which is comprised of smooth muscle tissue. It's a completely different organ and functions independently from your exterior abdominal muscles.

In general, exercise is helpful overall for IBS, so definitely stick with what you're doing. But I've never heard that having strong abdominal muscles will prevent digestive spasms.
