After just a quick look I have to advise you to take look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INI_file for ini file specification that your IniParser should take in consideration. Specially comments, keys outside of session, empty session in front of another session... The second thing you should reconsider is the way we should use this IniParser in real life. Is it wise to parse, again, ini file for every session key that we are supposed to read from that ini file? Just image a long ini file with multiple sessions and lot of keys (mysql.ini, win.ini). The best way will be to make a bunch of unit tests and usage samples. Beside the DRY you should stick to "Eat Your Own Dog Food" principle too.
