If the IPs in question are in a subnet you can always specify the subnet it's self.  I.e.

iptables -A ... -p ... -s -d ... -j ...

You might want to take a look at the set match.  Set uses an external program (ipset?) to create and maintain the sets that are matched against.  I think set will allow you to have multiple IPs in it that are not necessarily in the same subnet or contiguous.  So that may do it for you.  I have not messed with ipset so I'm not much help for you.  Though a read of the man for it should help.
