Well, according to their web site, they are still “IANA”.  See:

http://www.iana.org

"The global coordination of the DNS Root, IP addressing, and other Internet protocol resources is performed as the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions.”

If their web page can abbreviate this as “IANA”, then I think we can as well.
