Version 5 of the bigtop kafka charm supports binding kafka to a specific ip or interface:

https://jujucharms.com/kafka/trusty/5

Note!!
There are 2 Kafka charms in play here. "kafka" provides the Bigtop kafka package, but will not work in a network restricted environment. "apache-kafka" provides the vanilla upstream kafka package, and does have a mechanism for installing in a net-restricted env.

Only "kafka" contains this interface binding functionality. I'll leave this bug opened to track the progress of bringing this feature into the "apache-kafka" charm.
