If you're trying to set a static IP address on the machine where you're
running anaconda, it's somewhat tricky. You need to use the dracut
syntax for ip=:

However, this raises the question of why you're doing it at all. If you
just pass sshd and no ip= parameter at all, anaconda will automatically
use DHCP on the first network interface, which should do the job in most
cases. Then you just find out the IP address the machine got from DHCP,
and ssh to that address.
