If I have the A record in the DNS pointed to a unique IP address on our server, but have mutiple IP addresses associated with the host headers, will this cause an issue?

You can't have multiple hosts using the same individual IP running SSL. Each one needing SSL must be unique.
You can however; 1. Have an SSL cert for www.site.com using IP 192.168.1.2 w/ host headers 2. Make a second host, www.company.com, using IP 192.168.1.2 w/ host headers. However this can not be assigned SSL using this IP.
Also, if you were to go to https:// www.company.com, you'd get a browser error about the certificate not matching https://www.site.com.
