IDS (Intrusion detection systems) does intrusion detection and generates alerts.

IDP (Intrusion detection and Prevention system) detects intrusions and also prevents them, it also generates alerts.

IDS checks traffic flows and alerts on anomalies or triggers of signatures. IPS does the same thing but it can also prevent attacks by accessing your devices and making ACL/firewall changes to block the offender. IPS is the next generation of IDS.
