Just want to know if there is a difference since I'm trying to order the Revision Guides for all my subjects, and I found a book for IGCSE ICT, but I'm taking Computer Science so I'm a little unsure if there's even a difference.

They are completely different specs I think. You need to get a computer science 9-1 GCSE book.

They are different subjects. CS has programming in and ICT is more about technology in a wider sense.
Pick the right ones.
Look at the content pages to see how the syllabus differs.
