Inheritance will be classed as a windfall and will probably have to be paid across. If you reach the magical 100% plus fees, anything else will be yours.

It was strange that they let me keep half of the average holiday claim money I received or is that not classed as a windfall as I should be been getting it anyway

No, your holiday pay is not classed as a windfall, it is more like a bonus.

Work related income is treated differently in that you generally keep half of extra income (except redundancy payments). You always owe the full original debt, plus fees and possible statutoey interest .... if the inheritance takes you up to that figure the IVA will end early, if not it will continue "as is".
If you get close to that figure it might be worthwhile asking the IP if the creditors would exclude statutory interest, which might bring about an early conclusion.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
