Is it possible to block traffic on port 443 based on the destination's ip address or is that encrypted?

Remember that networking works with layers: (simplified)
The IP address is below the SSL layers, so it is not "encrypted". Your firewall can do filtering based on the source and destination IP and destination TCP port (443).
