I'm only aware of two differences in the 2-whistle system (which is mostly what I use).

1) NFHS says for the officials to stand on the blocks during a full time-out. IAABO says to have one official at the spot where the ball will be put in play and the other official at midcourt. That's the good one.

2) NFHS says that the Lead official is responsible for the nearer sideline all the way to the other endline. IAABO recommends an "optional" coverage in which the Trail official is responsible for the Lead's sideline above the FT line extended. When the Trail makes a call on that line, the offcials don't switch. I don't like this mechanic. Mostly just because it's not what I'm used to.
