If you put all your variables (including the instruments) into mean-
deviation form by hand, and use ivreg2 or condivreg do to the LIML 
estimation on the demeaned data, you will in effect have done LIML with 
fixed effects.  The only problem (aside from the hassle of having to do 
the demeaning) is that, as usual when estimating in mean-deviation form, 
the degrees of freedom will be wrong and you'll need to adjust your 
standard errors.  Also straightforward, but again a minor hassle.

Hope this helps.
