A computer often has a number of associated ip addreses; so it is a bit difficult. However interfaces usually have a unique address (or at least a prime address) so it makes more sense to think in terms of the ip address of a particular NIC in the machine. So ifconfig is the most reasonable way to find what ip addresses are associated with your computer.
