I have two IPs assigned to the same interface (host A):

3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group default qlen 1000
link/ether a4:bf:01:24:f8:7c brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 10.10.200.22/24 brd 10.10.100.255 scope global eth1
   valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
inet 10.10.200.155/32 scope global eth1
   valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

and some service listening on 10.10.200.155:80. When I'm trying to telnet port 80 the connection is hanging (source address 10.10.201.2, host B). tcpdump on host A shows me sth like this (repeating):

# tcpdump -n -i any dst 10.10.200.155
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
listening on any, link-type LINUX_SLL (Linux cooked), capture size 262144 bytes

Some communication reaches 10.10.200.155 but there are strange(?) ARP requests from 10.10.200.155 asking for itself, is it ok? There is no other traffic in background so all those packets are generated on telneting. On host A tcpdump shows nothing for tcpdump -n -i any dst 10.10.201.2. Routes for those addresses:

10.10.200.0/24 dev eth1  proto kernel  scope link  src 10.10.200.22 
10.10.201.2 via 10.10.200.155 dev eth1

Do you have any idea why traffic can't pass back to 10.10.201.2?

Your second IP seems wrong. You are assigning another IP with a different subnet mask (/32).

Assign a secondary IP with the same subnet mask. You have examples here in the comment: Persist IP address alias across reboots in CentOS/RHEL 6 using "ip" command

Looks like I found some temporary workaround. After adding new IP to the interface I have to flush related route and add it one more time.. Then communication works perfectly. Does anyone know why it happen like this?

I had this happen to me in a slightly different way, the root cause was a mistake in my 'ip route add' command, instead of doing 'ip route add via <remote gateway IP address> dev <local interface>' I did 'ip route add via <local interface IP address> dev <local interface>'. I'm not saying that's your issue but just check.
