You can toggle the whitespace-matching behavior during Isearch using
`M-s SPC' (command `isearch-toggle-lax-whitespace').

The doc string of `isearch-lax-whitespace' should tell you this directly,
but it says only that you can use `isearch-toggle-lax-whitespace'.  It
does not tell you that this command is bound to `M-s SPC' during Isearch.

I've just now filed bug #22483 for this oversight.
