no. as you are doing NAT for your client. so your client ip is translated to be your linux ip when sending packets to the internet.

you need another address in order to avoid blacklists, or fix the problem that put you there (better).

Or maybe a solution can be to make irc ports to be forward to some proxy and when your client uses irc the ip will be the ip of the proxy, but you have to find proxy.
