According to ./doc/DETAILS, "i" means invalid.
Here's the excerpt:
2. Field: A letter describing the calculated trust. This is a single
letter, but be prepared that additional information may follow
in some future versions. (not used for secret keys)
o = Unknown (this key is new to the system)
i = The key is invalid (e.g. due to a missing self-signature)
d = The key has been disabled
r = The key has been revoked
e = The key has expired
- = Unknown trust (i.e. no value assigned)
q = Undefined trust
'-' and 'q' may safely be treated as the same
value for most purposes
n = Don't trust this key at all
m = There is marginal trust in this key
f = The key is full trusted.
u = The key is ultimately trusted; this is only used for
keys for which the secret key is also available.
