IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) generally means the same thing as sensor shift stabilization. There are two general advantages - lenses that do not have stabilization may benefit from IBIS (think Nikon primes), and lenses that do have stabilization can (if designed) work in concert with IBIS for even better stabilization.

There are more advantages. IBIS can correct for all possible type of camera motions, including rotation around the lens axis, while VR cannot do that.

IBIS can also be used for taking several images each one exactly moved by one pixel, capturing all colors at each pixel (requires camera on tripod etc. and stationary subject).
