Default EBU Vs. IBU

How do the European Bittering Units differ from International? Just curious. I couldn't fine anything on the search for it (3 chars.)

I believe they're identical, but the EBU equation is generally expressed using metric units and the IBU equation using ounces and gallons. The scalars are different, so you get the same answer either way.
