More than likely not, without some other tools and private info
Most computers are internally assigned non routable ip addresses that are behind a router, you might get the outside ip on the router facing the
internet, but depending upon routing and security at the isp, you may not be able to directly identify a person at their specific computer on their
home network, there are tools out there that might assist in directly identifying a computer but chances are slim for average individuals to dig in
and get info, just because of how things are generally set up to work when involving an isp, their routers and networks and your own private network
The logs that a webmaster has also are unverifiable in identifying a specific user/computer in most cases also their log might be associated with a
login/public facing ip, but because of what I just explained there is no way to say 100% that user is who is targeting you if they have multiple
computers on a natted lan in their home, you might get the locale / isp info or the specific CO the router and switch is located, much of this beyond
that is going to have some security appliance in the chain separating internet ip's (public) from individual private nat in a home.
you can theoretically have the same 192.x.x.x or 10. or 172, address in a private network as one of your neighbors because those addresses only work
to route traffic on your internal network, and therefore not generally visible from the internet ip wise, if you had really bad guys trying to do
things to you, they would be using spoofing tools etc, so you cannot identify them for sure, even if you had tools and personal info.
