Use this command:

$ ifconfig -a

Your output will be like this:

lo0: flags=849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 8232
inet netmask ff000000
inet netmask fffffc00 broadcast

You will have either a le0, hme0, qfe0...the inet is the IP address.
Check the man page on ifconfig

some admins (such as myself) like to chmod 000 the ifconfig utility, so try pinging a host (your IP will be displayed when you do), that usually works.

hostname -i

or open /etc/hosts
you'll see the list

I believe that you can ping the hostname.

ping `hostname`

This should return the IP address.

# ping `hostname`
PING myhost: 64 byte packets
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0. time=0. ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1. time=0. ms

----myhost PING Statistics----
2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip (ms) min/avg/max = 0/0/0

Hope this helps!!!
