Only if you were hosting the web-site yourself. When you say GoDaddy is going to host your pages, I assume that you mean the web pages are going to be on their servers. They already have an IP address (actually ranges of addresses) which is unique to their network and their ISP.
A domain name is unique to a website. I can host as many websites as my hardware will handle, but the only way the server knows which pages to serve up is to have a domain name. Unless I only have one web-site per IP.
