Amount of foreign tax credit allowed  for a taxyear is based on a ration of foreign income  to world income. The un-allowed portion can be carried forward upto 10 years but again allowed  based on a ratiometric  fashion. You can take deduction for the whole amount ( itemized deduction under  taxes paid )
