The SSL is still free and you need a dedicated IP for an SSL so I would say it does what it says on the tin.
Although maybe a:-
*purchase of a dedicated IP is required
Would make it clearer and fairer?

I would see your point if you were paying $20 for the dedicated IP.
But if its say, $1.50 for the IP and you get the ssl certificate included, thats a pretty nifty deal as ssl certificates go for a minimum of around $18.
Yes, your paying them more money than you had initially planned, having to add another (paid for) resource to get the bundled product but you are still getting what they advertised, they just "forgot" to mention you had to buy the ip to go along with it.
Best of luck
