I am sorry to disagree with you, however, the TOEFL requires a much more stringent ability to use the language than the IELTS.

You mentioned that the IELTS requires two essays. In this regard there is no difference between the two tests. The IELTS requires an essay written from a topic and a short essay in which you must discern information from a chart.

The TOEFL also requires an essay written from a topic and a short essay where you glean information from a lecture after reading a passage.

Where the two tests differ is, as I have said in a previous post, the TOEFL requires you to use 2 or more parts of your ability on a given exercise.

Also, where is there no multiple choice on the IELTS. The Reading section answers all come from multiple choice.
