GG says there are many reasons that penalties based on banning IP addresses are not a good idea, and he hasn't seen one in a long time. Link to quote

Jesse_Smith, the things you mentioned are good reasons why IP address penalties are usually not a good idea. All the comments about manual penalties apply, plus it's easy for a bad guy to switch to a different IP. I haven't seen an IP-based penalty in a long time.

Okay, it's way past 1am my time, and I'm tuckered. Hope this was helpful to folks, and as usual I'll be around to answer questions when I can. Good night..

That's great news, especially since it's now harder to get an IP address for every domain. A lot of web hosting companies require a good reason for a IP address for every domain, and using the reason of trying not to get banned from Google probably won't get you the IP address.
