Our staging site currently does not have a domain name for public access, however we do have access over the IP address (like xx.xx.xxx.xxx).

Could we use Google Custom Search for this site without a domain?

Nothing in the Google Custom Search documentation, including their URL pattern examples, states anything in regards to using an IP address. However, Google does crawl and index IP addresses, so it might be worthwhile to try since it is the same search engine.
