Hydrogen does form ionic bonds. Although not as bare $\ce{H+}$, it can form ionic bonds in the form of $\ce{H-}$ (hydride anion). $\ce{H-}$ forms ionic bonds with alkali metal ions and alkaline earth metal ions (except $\ce{Be^{2+}}$). These type of ionic compounds formed by hydride ion are called saline hydrides, as they are salt type. These hydrides like ...

Apart from the sources that DavePhD listed, there is also the 1932 Nobel Prize in Physics, awarded to Werner Heisenberg: "for the creation of quantum mechanics, the application of which has, inter alia, led to the discovery of the allotropic forms of hydrogen." The "allotropic forms" of hydrogen mentioned here refer to the nuclear spin ...
