Are you sure it is google.. or someone who used google search query?

It could also be simply a scanning bot.

The IP address belong to Google

And it is not a GoogleBot. It is actively trying to get FTP access.

The only thing I can think of is that Google is also a ISP and someone subscribed to it is trying to hack into the FTP account. Or maybe Google offer proxy services to hackers.
