Matias Suarez had an early opportunity for the hosts, attempting a strike from 25 yards out, but Salvatore Sirigu was able to hold on to it.
However, the French champions took the lead 17 minutes in, when Ibrahimovic tapped in from close range following a cross from Edinson Cavani.
The Swedish international doubled PSG's advantage five minutes later with an almost identical finish from a Gregory van der Wiel delivery.
The striker completed his hat-trick 10 minutes before the break, drilling the ball into the top corner from 35 yards out.
