And now, for at least the past five years, a section on IP (intellectual property) has been part of the quarterly state-of-the-onion/rah-rah sessions that corporate puts on, while of course all the techy types at the company have been talking IP (Internet Protocol) since a previous century, and we still do (except for that hour or so each quarter). Or when somebody needs to talk to the patent lawyers.

I think the average person on the street is more likely to have (or have a teenager who has) set up a household router, and seen "IP address" a few times.
Of course, the most recent equipment shields you from all that and is part of your phone or cable service that "just works".

Mostly among people in the field. More or less the same way that "internet protocol" is mostly bandied about by people in tech fields.
The average person on the street is no more likely to know either term than any of the other 300 or so definitions for the acronym.
