A key difference between the two forum solutions is that Invision Power board is a commercial solution and if you want to use it you’ll have to pay for it whereas phpBB is free of cost forum solution.

Being a commercial product, IPS has more advanced administrative control panel then phpBB and a more professional look. phpBB is easy to use with its simple interface. It’s a good choice for people who have less or no experience of administrating a forum.

Both IPS and phpBB support RSS feed.

It also works on other database engines and is usually shortened to IP.Board, IP Board, or IPB. It is a commercial product, but there are modifications done by modding community that are for free.

While Invision Power Board being a commercial product, phpBB is different. Even if they are both forum software, phpBB is free for use by the public.
