Are you signing the app with your development certificate?
I have added my p12 and mobile provisioning files when defining the signing key for PhoneGap Build to use. So, I'm not signing the app; but PhoneGap Build should be. PGB is not indicating any build errors. The PGB log shows that it did its "CodeSign" step and that the "BUILD SUCCEEDED." While I'm not very familiar with building iOS apps, I have succeeded in getting PGB to build a different app which Apple has approved and is now available in their app store.

That may not be relevant, because it's done with a distribution certificate.
Chris asked about the development certificate. Also, it would be interesting to know whether or not you included the device ID in your development mobileprovision (and if so, is that UUID a real one, or rather Apple's fake UUID, starting with 'FF')?
The mobile provisioning profile and p12 certificate that I configured in PhoneGap Build were the distribution versions. Do I need to use the development ones if I am adding the .ipa file to iTunes myself?

The distribution certificate allows you to upload to the AppStore. Apps can only be downloaded and installed from there, then.
If you want to install an .ipa on your test device directly, you need a development certificate, registered devices (in your Apple developers account) and a mobileprovision with those devices included.
Thanks. That worked. I was coming from an Android mindset where you can install your signed .apk file to your development device.
