Static IP not really static?

The 'go' company....

Not sure if we are able to mention names here so, I'm sure most of you know who the 'go' parental unit company is right? :)

Ok well I was on their deluxe package, then switched to a basic basic as it's an 8 page site with a very limited php script that runs fine.

But after reading everywhere I decided to give it our all for better results with a static IP address. After much to do to downgrade and get the static IP address, I'm finding that it is really not a static IP address?

Now when I type the IP address in, the website does show up...
On their control panel however, it shows the following:
Server IP Address:
Dedicated Hosting IP: 208.109.#*$!.#*$!
Then when I use Whois from domain tools I get this:

Server Type: Apache
IP Address: [Whois] [Reverse-Ip] [Ping] [DNS Lookup] [Traceroute]
IP Location United States - Arizona - Scottsdale - Go Daddy Software
Response Code: 200
Blacklist Status: Clear
Domain Status: Registered And Active Website

What can I do to ensure I'm getting what I paid for here? Are they providing me with their internal server IP address or the place externally where I site but I have another external mapped to the other external?

I'm confused..

Does the dedicated hosting IP resolve to your site?
