Difference between ionization energy and threshold energy

What is the difference between ionization energy and threshold energy, if there is one?

Ionization energy is energy required to remove an electron off an isolated atom or molecule. Threshold energy is basically same thing but its the minimum energy required to remove an electron and is the work function (in photoelectric effect).
