Following up on Kat's question during last night's RTFM, it looks like 
the ignoreip option in a jail's configuration affects the filter (rather 
than the actions), in that the "Currently failed" and "Total failed" 
counters for that filter don't increment when a failure is logged for an 
IP that's in the range/list of the ignoreip option.

So, in short, those IP's are completely ignored, for all intents and 
purposes, by fail2ban.
