Ir + a + infinitivo

This construction is pretty basic but not even my Spanish professor could come up with the name of the tense when it was used as "iba a ser." She just called it "future in the past" and that makes no sense.
Normally I'm pretty good at naming tenses, but what's this one called? Is there a specific name for it?
