Typically No.

The accounting start packet is generated by most NASes when the
authentication is approved.
Unless there is a static IP address assigned to the port, it will not
wait for the DHCP cycle to complete (which could even fail!).

Currently the end users IP address is only sent in accounting stop

Is there a way to get the start packets to include the IP address also?
