I can't even see an option for printer type, where usually Fax, Windows, IP buttons are (toolbar on the top). See picture.

enter image description here

How is that possible and how can I add printer manually by IP?

OK, so this is not really an answer to the questions why you can't do it. But this should allow you to install a printer:

open safari and go to

http://localhost:631

that is the CUPS web interface for your local printing system. you should be able to do things like adding a removing printers in there. if it tells you that the web interface is disabled open a terminal and type:

sudo cupsctl WebInterface=yes
