In brief: Different targets

Either can develop tolerance, long acting a little more likely b/c in system longer. But imdur usually for prolonged venous-dilitation / cardiac perfusion effects and immediate / short formulation more common w/cardiac symptoms.
Ask you cardiologist or pharmacist for more specific information.
