Why does one ip say two different places?

why would (on gmail) at the bottom read an ip address of one place (overseas) hubby is in the military and when you pull up the details, it says the location is US and in california? which is it? I was looking at our gmail we get on and was wondering if I could find out if he is coming home ! the ip was the same, however, when I did the search on the net (put the ip in the search engine, it said djubouti) but the recent activity logg had the same ip and said California...

Could be a proxy. Could be that the entry for the IP address isn't accurate.

Ip to location is only ~98% or so accurate, which means you will get a lot of exceptions (we do and it's same technology we use on our site).
