I just got this four bottom IH plow, first time I used it was yesterday. It was pulling my tractor into the new plowed ground. I know I need to adjust it, I was wondering if I moved the draw bar to the furrow side and moved the hitch to the land side if it was possible to make it an on land plow?

Yes. If you can get the things moved enough to have the first bottom taking the amount of cut you want it will work. Cousin did just that with a 5 bottom Case plow. His rear tractor tire was just bairrly out of the furrow but it worked good.

There's possibly a way to make it work as suggested already.... but at best it's going to leave you driving on the very edge of the slice all the time. The purpose of the onland hitch is simply to move the pull point on the plow out into the line fo draft on large plows. It's nearly impossible to set the wheel track wide enough to run in-furrow with a 7+ bottom, which is what onland hitches are mostly reserved for...
In your case I think proper setting will probably get things working easier for you. Of all the adjustments you can do to that plow, the pull point is the most important by far and also one of the most tedious...

If at all possible, you do need to get an operators manual for that plow. The manual will have specific instructions, along with pictures, on exactly how to set up and adjust the plow so it follows easily behind the tractor without trying to pull the tractor into the furrow. The proper adjustments involve not only the hitch on the plow but the tail wheel as well. If the plow is set up and adjusted correctly, the tractor operator has nothing to do but set in the seat and drive.

If your tractor is narrow enough you could probably successfully make it an onland plow. A guy around home wanted to show off for a JD show and hooked a 4-14" to an unstyled D and set it up as onland and it worked fine.
I think you can make in-furrow work, you just need to understand line of draft in both cases. Please refer to the picture. It sounds like you need to move the tractor drawbar and the plow hitch to the left, or to the unplowed ground. I am guessing your set-up will look like the left diagram. You need to line up point B with A and C. A and C don't move, but you can adjust where B is.

Typically with these type plows, you would be running the right tractor wheel in the furrow cut by the previous pass. If your hitch is set up right, you should be pretty much pulling straight wit hthis setup. Keeping your tractor fully on the unplowed land probably will not work well.
