using --multifile to create multiple ".pgp" files from source files

I have a list of files that I want to encrypt to files with ".pgp" extension because my clients are incapable of changing to ".gpg".

The following creates multiple files "IBK*.gpg" from the source files "IBK*.txt":
gpg --homedir /home/wsc_gpg/.gnupg --always-trust --force-mdc --batch --yes -r <pgpkey> -e "IBK*.txt"

I know that I can force it do one file at a time by specify the -option, but I would really like to do something like:
gpg --homedir /home/wsc_gpg/.gnupg --always-trust --force-mdc --batch --yes -r <pgpkey>--output *.pgp  -e "IBK*.txt"

Is this doable?
