I would do the following:
- just use a TextLine schema field for the ip
- add a custom schema constraint that checks the dots and values of the ip address
- use the default textline widget associated with the TextLine schema field
- optionaly add a bit of javascript that helps the user entering a correct value
- add some method that can access individual octets of the ip if necessary

that seems simpler to me than implementing a multi-field text widget
