「いろいろやると大変【たいへん】になるから」と、メニューはカレーライス[1種類]【いっしゅるい】のみ
He opened a small curry shop with only one type of curry rice on the menu, saying, "If I do too many things, it will be too much work."

Is いっしゅるい the correct reading of 1種類? Or possibly ひと or いち?

I found it in a sentence here:

Yes, いっしゅるい is a correct and more common reading although ひとしゅるい is possible.

いっしゅるい is 促音便 of いちしゅるい. It may be not impossible to pronounce it as いちしゅるい if the speaker wants to put an emphasis, saying it slowly, but it should be rare.
