Are induced dipole forces the same as London dispersion forces? Also does induced dipole only occur between a polar and non polar molecule?

I believe dipole-induced dipole forces are between a polar and nonpolar molecule, while induced dipole-induced dipole can occur between 2 polar or 2 nonpolar molecules, which is the same thing as London forces.

Induced dipole induced dipole and London Dispersion forces are the same thing. Induced dipole induced dipole occurs between two nonpolar molecules without permanent dipoles. Meanwhile, dipole induced dipole occurs between a polar molecule (with a permanent dipole) and a nonpolar molecule.
