Ivy is a very adaptable plant and will grow well in low to bright light. The biggest problem with growing ivy indoors is overwatering. Ivy likes to be watered on a regular basis, but the soil needs to dry out a bit between waterings. Just water yours thoroughly and then allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering again. A good way to judge is to pick up the plant. If it feels heavy it's because the soil is still moist and it won't need to be watered for a few more days; if it feels lightweight, it's time to water. You can rinse your plants off in the sink or in the shower when the leaves start to get dusty. A shower will refresh the plant, remove the dust and the leaves will be bright and shiny. Best wishes with your ivy!
