i was searching for part time jobs on my ipad and i saw that one app about being a receptionist for a physiotherapy place and then hours later an ad from that same place popped up on my phone while i was using facebook… is this a coincidence or I probably Sound dumb but does fb have access to my IP address and my internet history?

Not surprising. There are cases of people merely saying certain words next to their phone and then shortly afterwards ads related to said words appear on facebook despite having no apparent search history of it (worth trying as an experiment with your phone if you're bored).
