So you are suggesting just make the changes we do while changing the IP address 
of any server, no IPA configuration will need to be changed?


Change is the only Constant !

Fix a record in /etc/hosts file on IPA servers, if the IPA server

Make changes to the dns entries for the ipa servers and change the SRV records.

You may have to wait till TTL expires, or you can change the TTL to
very low value such as 60 before changing the IP address. Change IPs

Here we are talking about only changing IP Address, not hostname,
Changing hostname will be too complex, I will suggest you to setup a
replica, promote it as master & decommission the older master.
