You should probably repeat what you're doing within a loop. But no one will be able to provide you with more specific advice since you neglected to share your code.

"User should enter 100 or 1000 IP addresses" - by this statement, do you mean user provides 100's of IP addresses in the form of a file? If so, then wrap the logic you have for one IP address into a while block and repeat the same for each IP address read from the file.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

workOnIP () {
    echo "The IP Address you've entred is: $1"
    varip="$1"
    
    ### Code to process IP address
    
}

while read IP
do
    workOnIP $IP
done < file_containing_100_IPs
