A dipole-dipole force is between two dipoles like HCl and HCl. A dipole-induced dipole is between a dipole and a nonpolar molecule. The dipole distorts the electron cloud of the molecule, so the electrons shifts around the nucleus, causing a partial positive and partial negative charge, that becomes attracted to the dipole.
A dipole-dipole force occurs when both compounds naturally have dipoles (HI). Induced dipoles occur when both molecules don't have a dipoles, and the induced dipole is caused by a random shift in the electron cloud.
