The Blues dominated the first half yet never really troubled Plymouth keeper Luke McCormick.
Owen Garvan, Pablo Counago and Danny Haynes, all scorned decent opportunities.
Debut-making Alan Quinn had a couple of efforts blocked as he impressed in front of the Portman Road crowd.
In the Town goal Neil Alexander, who has been called up by new Scotland boss George Burley to a national training camp next week, had even less to do with a Peter Halmosi free kick Argyle's best effort on target.
Haynes' desire to get past Mathias Doumbe saw him stray off the pitch and nudge a referee's assistant into a photographic pit but after a short delay everyone was fine.
