Hello, whenever you are connected to the Internet, your IP address is visible. If you are calling and messaging this person over the internet then yes they would be able to see your IP address. But I think, if you are just calling from a mobile (not connected to the internet), they would just see your mobile number.

If you want to protect your IP address you can change your local IP address following these steps, or install a VPN (virtual private network) on your mobile device or computer which would then hide your IP address and show a different one.

Regards
