Every web site you ever visit has your public IP.

It is typically safe to give it to a client.

If you are concerned about privacy and security, then you need an onion-routed and properly encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) to mask your public IP. And in that case, a client may not accept a VPN IP address to whitelist. Because, it would give anyone using that a similar exit node the same whitelist privileges. Generally, VPN exit nodes are communal. Unless, of course, the client or you have a private VPN, as well.
