I am utilising Services to open up some login resources on my site and as a result if multiple users incorrectly try to sign in the entire external website will be blocked because of flood control.

Is there a way to add an IP whitelist to the flood so that there can be an unlimited number of requests from those IPs without them being blocked?

Try flood_unblock module and flood_control I think both will help you with your requirements, choose the best based on your use case.

    Ive tried both these modules, but they are a one change for all users/ips. I want to be able to create a whitelist so that specific IPs never go into flood. My workaround at the moment until i find a more elegant solution is to clear the flood if it matches a specific IP, so as to never block that address.

The functionality has not been released yet in a stable version, but it's in 2.3.x-dev version. See https://www.drupal.org/project/flood_control/issues/3192291
