I had an underpayment and was assessed a penalty. Will the IRS take my entire refund to satisfy that debt?

Yes, they will take the full amount that you owe.  You should receive a letter stating that your refund was taken.  You can also check the IRS website Where's My Refund, for any status of your refund.
