If I understand what you are wanting correctly, something I'm currently
doing may be what you want.

If you want to only allow specific IPs to connect to specific ports, you
might want to try this:

create 2 chains:  ip and port (or whatever you want to name them.

iptables -A INPUT -j ip
iptables -A FORWARD -j ip

in ip:
iptables -A ip -j port -s
iptables -A ip -j port -d

in port:
iptables -A port -j ACCEPT -p tcp --dport 80
iptables -A port -j ACCEPT -p tcp --dport 22

Since you have the policy already to drop, there's probably no reason to add
DROP rules to INPUT and FORWARD.

If you want to allow any IPs, just ad them to the ip chain.  If you want to
allow the current list of ips to access different ports, just ad that port
to the port chain.
