It depends on your learning style. If you are a concrete learner go for IELTS and if your learning style is more abstract TOEFL will be good for you. IELTS is conducted by British Council, Cambridge English Language Assessment whereas TOEFL is conducted by ETS (Educational Testing Service) a private non-profit U.S. organization.

Both the exams are accepted! Mostly the US university accepts the TOEFL & UK universities accept IELTS. But it's not hard bound both the test are accepted universally.

Both exam scores somewhat coincide... for example 9 band of IELTS is considered equivalent to 118/120 in TOEFL ibt. many universities even accept CPE ( Cambridge English: Proficiency)

Between these two i would suggest you to go for IELTS. PTE, a new exam is tougher than these two but you can consider it.
