London vs. dipole-induced-dipole interaction

I still don't quite understand the difference between the two, can someone explain it to me?

I think they're the same thing

Non-polar molecules are attracted through London dispersion attractions while polar molecules can be attracted through both London dispersion attractions and stronger dipole-dipole attractions.

In addition, in dipole-induced-dipole interaction the molecule that induces the dipole moment has a permanent dipole moment while it does not in London Dispersion.
