They are parishes within the borough...
Ipswich is an ancient place, with several major parishes that segment
the town. See <www.rootsweb.com/~engdorse/PRSU.html> for a list of
possible churches and their (sometimes ancient) parishes.
The main parishes to be aware of are c 1700-1900 are:
Ipswich St Clement

Ipswich St Mary at Quay
Ipswich St Mary at Stoke

The Suffolk FHS has produced a number of CDs and booklets that cover
BMDs etc, and they normally have a useful map on the front!
There are other villages, like Nacton, etc, which used to sit outside
the town, but are now normally treated as "assimilated" 8-)
