In this paper, we give a Beale-Kato-Majda type criterion of strong solutions to the incompressible ideal MHD equations. Instead of double exponential estimates, we get a single exponential bound on <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/96/mathml/M1','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/96/mathml/M1">View MathML</a> (<a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/96/mathml/M2','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/96/mathml/M2">View MathML</a>). It can be applied to a system of an ideal viscoelastic flow.
