IP does have an option called "Strict Source Routing" which would force an IP packet to take a specific path over the network - if it is unable to comply with the path, the IP packet will be discarded, and an ICMP error will be sent back to the source. Practically speaking, however, the only way this could be done is with a whole bunch of custom programming (unless someone somewhere has written a program to do this?) - so the short answer is "no".
