connect to host IP_ADDRESS port 22: Connection timed out

Most likely raspberrypi.local maps to a different IP address than If you got that address from a separate document it's possible they just listed whatever IP address it resolved to on their system. You can try getent hosts raspberrypi.local or gethostip raspberrypi.local to see which address it actually maps to.
