I'm trying to display my deserialized JSON on my VF page but I get Unknown property 'PDSrestCall.userProfile.ibmUniqueId' Help Please.

PS i removed the API endpoint for security purposes.

Here is my code:

global with sharing class PDSrestCall {

    public String requestMethod {get;set;}
    public String requestEndpoint {get;set;}
    public String responseStatus {get;set;}
    public Integer responseStatusCode {get;set;}
    public String responseBody {get;set;}
    public List<userProfile> userDetails {get;set;} 

    global static void restCall() {
        Http http = new Http();
        HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();
        req.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');

       HTTPResponse res = http.send(req);

       userProfile u = (userProfile)JSON.deserialize(res.getBody(),userProfile.class);

       system.debug('ibmUniqueId: ' + u.ibmUniqueId);
       system.debug('ibmId: ' + u.ibmId);
       system.debug('userName: ' + u.userName);
       system.debug('firstName: ' + u.firstName);
       system.debug('lastName: ' + u.lastName);
       system.debug('email: ' + u.email);
       system.debug('phone: ' + u.phone);

   public List<SelectOption> getMethodOptions(){
        List<SelectOption> options = new List<SelectOption>();
        options.add(new SelectOption('GET','GET'));
        options.add(new SelectOption('POST','GET'));
        options.add(new SelectOption('PUT','GET'));
        options.add(new SelectOption('DELETE','GET'));
        options.add(new SelectOption('HEAD','GET'));
        return options;

    global class userProfile{
        public String ibmUniqueId;
        public String ibmId;
        public String userName;
        public String firstName;
        public String lastName;
        public String email;
        public String phone;

        public userProfile(String ibmUniqueId, String ibmId, String userName, String firstName, String lastName, String email, String phone) {
            this.ibmUniqueId = ibmUniqueId;
            this.ibmId = ibmId;
            this.userName = userName;
            this.firstName = firstName;
            this.lastName = lastName;
            this.email = email;
            this.phone = phone;

Here is my VF code:

Notice how your controller has attributes annotated with getters and setters:

public String requestMethod {get;set;}

You need to do the same for your class definition. Note that you should use private setters unless you actually want the page to sat an attribute, and you should not use getters or setters for variables you do not need to reference on your page.

global class userProfile{
    public String ibmUniqueId { get; private set; }
    public String ibmId { get; private set; }
    // and so on
