Don't know if you're still checking this, but why not do both? I am currently an IE major and doing a certificate (my university's equivalent to a minor) in Physics. I, too, have found that Physics is more interesting than other IE coursework, which is the main reason I decided to do the certificate. Another reason being that I plan on taking a circuits class, and the company (Rockwell Automation) I am currently interning at (and hopefully will be working full time for when I graduate in a few years) makes many electrical products, and I wanted to have some background knowledge on how circuits and everything work so I can understand what the EEs are talking about. But I also agree that solely majoring in Physics will not have the greatest job outlook with only a BS. It's up to you, of course, but I am happy with my decision to major in IE and minor in Physics, and have recommended it to several of my IE friends.
