The main difference between Language Interface Pack (LIP) and Language Pack (LP) is in the level of localization in comparison to Language Pack (LP) packages:

LIP packages provide the desktop user with the most frequently accessed user interface and basic user assistance support (help files). In addition, LIP is installed as a language add-on on top of an existing LP with base language dependency (Catalan LIP can only be installed on top of Spanish or French LP, Welsh LIP can only be installed on top of English LP).  In addition, once a LIP is installed, switching the user interface between the LIP language and the LP base language is possible for users on all versions of Windows. LIP relies on the same resource-loading technology that MUI LP is built on, and installs ontop of one base LP (in most cases).
