  As the title says is it possible to find someone's ip address from block explorer and if not would this be a useful function?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

It depends on what you are trying to do, but generally, no.  The blockchain does not store IP addresses.

Friend of a friend is confused.  There is no IP address in the transaction.  You hear about a transaction from the peers that you are connected to which may or may not be the peer that created the transaction.  Furthermore even if you are lucky enough (or well connected enough) to have the person who creates the transaction as one of your connected peers, they may be running TOR which would hide their IP, or may be using a hosted wallet such as blockchain.info which would also hide their IP.
