I dont think they have a clear reason why embryos move up to the tubes, but it does happen, more frequently in IVF that we'd like to think. Especially if you have scarred tubes, the likely hood of an ectopic increases even with IVF. The embryo's are usually transferred with a bit of fluid , its conceivable that they are a bit free flowing for at least a little while..and since we have to lay down for 30 mins- to an hour after transfer (they even elevated my bed so that my hips were raised slightly)..i can see how they could possibly get in the tubes.
