I don't know what you mean whitelist_from_spf for ip addresses. If SPF
is passed you don't need sending IP/hostname to pass the email as it has
been authenticated already. If you just want to whitelist all e-mail
coming from particular machine follow these steps:


whitelist_from_rcvd addr at lists.sourceforge.net sourceforge.net
Works similarly to whitelist_from, except that in addition to matching a
sender address, a relay's rDNS name or its IP address must match too for
the whitelisting rule to fire. The first parameter is a sender's e-mail
address to whitelist, and the second is a string to match the relay's
rDNS, or its IP address. Matching is case-insensitive.

If you don't know the email address or want to whitelist all mail
relayed by this host you can use:
whitelist_from_rcvd *@* [XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX]

More examples:
  whitelist_from_rcvd joe at example.com  example.com
  whitelist_from_rcvd *@axkit.org      sergeant.org
  whitelist_from_rcvd *@axkit.org      []
