I think it would be more easier to restrict access from a certain computer name, especially if you use DHCP in your network - this would be done very simple in the account settings from "Active directory users and computers" the "Account" tab has an button "Log on to" - there you can list the computer from where will have access.

The previous comment is absolutely correct.  If you would like to use an IP address you can assign a Static IP to the PC you want them to use, then add that IP address into AD.
