You don't have to do anything with this.  One of the benefits of an IRA is that growth on an IRA is tax-deferred, which means you do not have to report the activity within the IRA that is producing the growth.  Instead, you report distributions from the IRA account.  The taxability of the distribution is determined when you receive it and report it into income.  But even then, the growth (investment activity or otherwise), will not have to be reported on your personal tax return.
