This is a short term, inconclusive, correlation, but to the day, earnings are down 50%, versus a very long term average, CTR has steadily declined. I won't get into more specifics, as I've said at this time no conclusions can be drawn, just observations made.
I have contacted Adsense informing them of the forced address change. I have found in the past if you contact Adsense with information useful to Adsense, you may see an earnings boost for a period thereafter. (Smart pricing reset ?). Regardless I await their reply and will report back.
Obviously for Google search, a long term, stable, static IP address could be a trust factor. I imagine the same is true for Adsense. I didn't write Adsense immediately upon the IP address change, I hoped it would be transparent. Of course I'm still worried about the long term impact on Adsense earnings, and in the not to distant future, SERPS rankings.
Anyone else with a similar experience with an IP address change and it's impact on Adsense.
The problem occurs when your DNS is changed, it can take up to a day or so for that change to become updated web wide, if Google is still looking for the site on the old IP address and it doesn't exist then it see an error. If the Adsense bot can't read your site because of this then obviously the ads shown will be effected.
The problem should resolve itself once the Google bots start looking on the new IP address.

What did change were my adsense earnings but that was a good thing. After moving, I noticed how my daily earnings improved significantly. Maybe it had something to do with the new server's performance, don't really know but I'm happy with it.
Could it be that your new host & server is slightly slower than the what it had been previously? This could account for a 50% decrease in Adsense revenue.
This will tell you what websites are near you.

Though saying all of this, I think its more likely that you might have some intermittent downtime which is effecting your adsense (and may not be visible from your connection.)
