I'm not familiar with ipsets, but from a quick Google search it seems
like you can increase the size of an ipset (or make a new larger one and
migrate your IPs to the new one).  Multiple sets looks like it'd work as

Another possibility for you to look at is sshguard.  It can protect
against brute force ssh attacks (using iptables rules, which is how I
use it) but IIRC it can also protect against http attacks (I've never
used it that way, so I don't know how difficult this is).

Can you be more specific about the "load" you're trying to mitigate?  Is
it really the load on your home system, or is it that attackers are
using your bandwidth, or a combination?
