IG does not provide RSS feeds. You will have to use third-party services to generate custom RSS/XML feeds and add them at regular intervals to linkgrabber using a script.

Alternatively, you can also use a script to add native IG urls to the linkgrabber at regular intervals. By default this will fetch all the content from the given url. There is a plugin option where you can specify the 'x' latest items to be fetched. This however does not seem to be currently working as expected.

If you want to avoid adding duplicate urls to linkgrabber, you will have to leave the old urls in the download list or linkgrabber list. If the links are present in linkgrabber, JD will skip them. Links present in the download list will be added to the list and marked (BG color will be red) as duplicate. You can create a linkgrabber filter rule to also skip links which are present in the download list.

Code:
// Add urls to linkgrabber at user-defined intervals
// Trigger: Interval (Recommended 3600000 ms or more)

var urls = [];
urls[urls.length] = "**External links are only visible to Support Staff**;
urls[urls.length] = "**External links are only visible to Support Staff**;
urls[urls.length] = "**External links are only visible to Support Staff**;
urls[urls.length] = "**External links are only visible to Support Staff**;
urls[urls.length] = "**External links are only visible to Support Staff**;

callAPI("linkgrabberv2", "addLinks", {
    "links": urls.join(" ")
});
