How would you get the arm for a tenkan irimi?
I'd take a more traditional approach, one hand pinning the head to my body, the other blending with the striking arm as if it were there.

Iriminage is a play on balance, I don't think I'd need the arm there to help uke fall -- using the head is a place I'd start looking at.
