I want to allow all mail from [IP address]. This host doesn't have a domain name. 

I see two solutions : 
+ one is to find a 'whitelist' configuration option that understands IP addresses.
+ two is to add the IP address to my spf record.

Thanks Karol, this is probably my solution 1. Although now that I think of it, I should be doing two. What do you think ?
