    Due to user privacy concerns, Google Analytics doesn't report on personally identifiable information, including a visitor's IP address. Instead, Google Analytics provides aggregated data to help you make informed business decisions. You can view the Map Overlay report (under the Visitors section) to look at aggregated geographical data about your visitors, or view the Network Location report (under Visitors > Network Properties) to see your visitors' ISP locations.

    You cannot track IP addresses with Google Analytics. It is against the Google Analytics privacy policy to track "Personally dentifiable Information"

    The most identifiable information you can see for your visitors in Analytics is through the 'service provider' filter. Sometimes specific visiting your site can be identified in this way.

    The IP addresses will be on your web hosts server logs though. Have you checked with them to see if there's a way to access the logs?
    There are many applications that can read the logs and show analytic information.

    If you have a Wordpress site, install the free plugin called StatCounter and you can see all visitors IP addresses (and much more).

    There is no such features on Google Analytics. So you won't tract the specific IP address.

    We cannot track the ip address but can filter particular ip address using filter option.

    Thanks for that! I will install the plugin. It would be great if it were able to track IP's and also if they had clicked on an Adwords ad to get to your page.
