Below is one way to added individualized subtitles.  Without the -ycommon-
option on the graph combine, the middle subgraph (#5) is not as wide as the
others, though I am not sure why.  

Hope this helps,
Scott


graph drop _all
 irf graph irf, irf(test_irf) individual iname(A) 

local i = 1
foreach l1 in  Log(C) Log(Y) Log(I) {
  foreach l2 in  Log(C) Log(Y) Log(I) {
    	graph disp A`i'
    	if `i' >6 {
    		local ixtitle Years
    		local ixlabel #5
    	}
    	else {
    		local ixlabel ""
    		}

    	graph addplot,  subtitle("Response of `l1' to a `l2' Shock" , /// 
    	 size(small))  legend(order(1 "95% CI" 2 "IRF") ) /// 
	 xlabel(none) xtick(#5) xtitle("`ixtitle'") xlabel(`ixlabel') 
	
    	local gr "`gr' A`i'"
    	local ++i
   }
}

grc1leg `gr', title(My Title) 

or 

grc1leg `gr', title(My Title) ycommon
