Yes, definitely. I have successfully raised new irises from seed pods.

Wait till they are dry and you can sow them. You can also cross pollinate irises. I have tried several times.

Even if one is not interested in seed propagation, the pods and seeds of some Iris spp. can add visual interest to post-flowering plants.

Two Iris with particularly interesting seed pods are the Gladwin (Iris foetidissima) and the Blackberry-iris (Iris domestica, formerly Belamcanda chinensis). With Gladwin, the pods split to reveal bright red seeds, while the pods of the Blackberry-iris open even more widely to show round, glossy black seeds, clustered and thereby resembling a blackberry.
