Personally I'm using dracut with host-only option enabled. It uses 
system wide module blacklist and includes only modules for supported 
hardware in initramfs, not all of them. I've not encountered (yet) 
machine on which host-only config would prefer IDE drivers over SATA 
ones but perhaps it depends on hardware used.

If host-only config is not enough then best solution IMO is to patch 
dracut to prefer SATA drivers over IDE. It can be done by checking 
device class if more than one module is available.
