We present a theory to investigate the existence and the propagation properties of incoherently coupled single-hump and dipole soliton pairs in self-defocusing media with parity-time symmetric lattice. These soliton pairs can exist provided that they are composed of two optical beams with the same polarization and wavelength. It is found that single-hump soliton pairs are always stable when the components copropagate in the lattice, whereas high-power dipole soliton pairs are unstable. If one of the components is absent, the propagation behavior of the other one is also studied.
