    Probably not.
    Costing a dollar up front will deter lots of people.
    So, make the game, put in ads, and add a "Remove Ads" In-App purchase for one dollar.

    You could also "Lock" part of the game, so when they get to the end of the "Free" part (with ads) you could pop up a thing that says
    "Sorry, this is only available in the "Full" version" with a link to give you a dollar, if they buy it, the ads go away and the rest of the game is unlocked.
    If they like the game and want to support you, you will get your dollar.

    I wouldn't advise making it $1 and have iAP .. heck, lots of people hate iAP in FREE games.

    You really need to get lucky and hope Apple picks your App as 'best new app' or one of their designated categories.. which I think they do for every App submitted that they review, but it's extremely difficult to achieve.

    I'm guessing probably less then 5% of submitted apps make a big profit... Marketing will help but it won't be a guarentee your App will start selling like hot cakes.

    I think 3itg has the best method but maybe a little tricky to implement for newcomers.

    Best of luck
