You call:

  ierr = KSPCreate(PETSC_COMM_WORLD,&ksp);CHKERRQ(ierr);
  ierr = KSPSetOperators(ksp,A,A);CHKERRQ(ierr);
  PC pc;
  KSPGetPC(ksp, &pc);

  for(int j = 0; j < 2; ++j) {
    ierr = PCFieldSplitSetIS(pc, NULL, is[j]);CHKERRQ(ierr);

  ierr = KSPSetFromOptions(ksp);CHKERRQ(ierr);

So the pc is not SetFromOptions at the time you call SetIS.  PCFieldSplitSetIS does nothing if the PC type is not of type fieldsplit.

You need to call KSPSetFromOptions before the loop you have to set the ISes.
