IP layer does have certain state such as that for routing table,
which does not make it connection oriented.
Of course, there certainly is state of a connection, which MUST
be located at the transport layer or above, which is why
destination locator MUST be chosen by the transport layer
The Internet is connectionless.
So is IP.
