Leaf scorch can turn leaves brown. They are usually crispy if they are sunburned; supple if they are diseased. If the brown leaves are soft, it's a fungal disease. Root rot is the most common cause, especially if you had exceptional amounts of rain and the soil does not drain well. I'd just prune the brown leaves off the plant. There's no cure for root rot but ivy grows so well that even if sections die off, healthy new stems and leaves will grow in their places. I'd just prune the affected leaves and/or stems off the plant. Good luck with your ivy!
