Here's a (partially) tested rule that can spot two forms of bare IP.
The the rule given below the __MG_BAI0 subrule recognises plain IPs.
i.e. n.n.n.n and the __MG_BAI1 recognises URIs like your example, i.e. 
n.n.n.n/wwwww :

describe MG_BARE_IP Bare IP in a URI
body     __MG_BAI0 /\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}/
uri      __MG_BAI1 /\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\/\w*/
meta     MG_BARE_IP (__MG_BAI0 || __MG_BAI1)
score    MG_BARE_IP 0.01

Note that the bare IP - n.n.n.n - is NOT a URI and so must be a body
text rule while the bare IP with a '/name' suffix is a URI and so is
found by a URI rule. This is why I used two subrules joined by the

Note that technical computing discussions may validly contain bare IPs,
e.g. is never a spam indication since it is the IP of
'localhost' and so its appearance is not a spam indication. There are
other well-known IPs that are also not spam indications.
