We have basically implemented 2 different skus. 1 sku is for singles, and 
they can order any qty the want, and the other sku is for full boxes. This 
makes the vendor stock two different shelf items, but it takes care of the 
problem. You can list the box qty sku in the product description or use the 
promotion feature in IC to show the associated item.

The real solution would be to make IC create a new line item entry for the 
qty that exceeds the box qty (or multiple of the box qty). You would have to 
enter a new field into the inventory database for case/box qty for each sku 
and do the necessary coding at some point after the user clicks the 
add-to-cart button.

I need this feature also, but have settled on the easy-out for now.
