WordPress won't care about the IPs, It's Apache's job to map IPs to your vhosts. You need to look at the Apache config: set up either 5 separate VirtualHost entries that all point to the same DocumentRoot, or tell Apache to listen on all available IPs, and use a wildcard match on a single VirtualHost section.
