Muralir,the IXUS has 24-120mm lens while the SX220 has 28-392mm lens.While the IXUS dosen't have a manual focus the SX220 does and also has a larger screen.
IXUS has a faster lens.
IXUS has wider angle for indoors and group photos but short telephoto lens for distant subjects.
It will depend a lot on what kind of photography you would like to do most.I haven't covered all the differences between them but have only included the most obvious ones.
For all purpose photography the SX seems to be slightly better.If the price is your major concern buy the one that is easy on your pocket.
You can also have look at some Fuji,Sony and Panasonic cameras with similar features,it doesn't always have to be either canon or Nikon.
