It's a bit more complicated than that... Ihr can be:

  • second person plural, nominative case

  • third person singular female, dative case

  • possessive article for masculine and neuter things

It can mean lots of things, depending on whether it stands along or before a noun, and depending on the case it is in.

Have a look at this comment of mine where I tried to list all of the uses of this little word:
