There are no similarities. Conditions in IW are generally very unique for a hard court tournament.
That is extremely outdated information (it is "medium" in name only).

The US Open has gotten slower and slower and slower to the point that it has surpassed Indian Wells. Did you see any of Nadal's matches? He was literally glued to the backboard/wall/physical edge of the court, right where the ballboys and line judges and USTA crowd control security were lined up. That's because the bounce has become nearly clay court level now.
