InputField can handle its input as a string.

s = ""; InputField[Dynamic[s], String,
 FieldHint -> "Enter series of integers"]

This will handle comma- or space-separated input or a mix of the two,
with or without List brackets:

response = "{" <>
    StringReplace[
     StringReplace[s, "," -> " "],
     Whitespace -> ","] <> "}" //
   ToExpression // Flatten
