I give up. Your new iplist is full of duplicates, your data have IPs not covered in iplist, and your data have at least one empty line responsible for the "bad array subscript" error (on stderr, by the way). I repeat: The script and its output were tested on a recent linux system using a correct, reasonably strucured *nix file as given in your first posts.



Did you use <TAB>s as the delimiter when echoing the results to cut (as can be easily seen necessary in man cut)?

OK, (sigh), dealing with duplicates in iplist, empty lines in data, and IPs not in iplist. Be aware that this is NOT a turnkey solution handling any special case that you / your data sources may come up with but is a proof of concept that was adapted to the ever changing targets from post #1 to post #(n-1). No error handling etc. included (yet). I recommend reading additional documents (e.g. man pages) by yourself should not every pitfall be covered.



Code:
IFS=,
 declare -A IPASS
for i in $iplist;   do  [ ${IPASS[$i]} ] && echo "duplicate $i" || IPASS[$i]=${#IPASS[@]};   done
 MX=${#IPASS[@]}
{ while read LN
    do  [ "$LN" ] || continue
        [ ${#LN} -le 15 ] && {  RC=${IPASS[$LN]:-$MX}
                                unset IPASS[$LN]
                             }
        echo "$RC       $((++CNT))      $LN"
    done < file
  for i in ${!IPASS[@]}
    do  echo "${IPASS[$i]}      $((++CNT))      $i      not in data file"
    done
  echo "$MX     0                       not in iplist:"
