Is this safe?

Hi

I was wondering: I got my Eventide stuff to work finally, using the Apple Camera Connection Kit on my iPad. I attached a USB hub to the iPad via that ACCK. The hub is now powered by the iPad. then I plugged in the ICM4+ device jack2 into the hub as well, so I have midi connection to the iPad. This works as far as midi is concerned. But I'm not sure about the electrical connection. It's indeed the first time I encounter a USB device that provides power from the device jack. Now the ICM4+ USB device jack B delivers current to the hub, but the hub delivers current to the jack the ICM4+ is connected to. Is this electrically safe? I am not familiar with the USB pinout. Not wanting to fry my device.....

Thanks
