Am I just missing something here? Because they both look the same to me.

No. They are same. Ionian is a "mode" when major is "scale", I dont know if there are deeper difference of these two concepts, but "basically" its a different term of "starting point in a scale". Check out more of modes stuff from lessons.

yer missin' nothing... major is major ala: 1234567 so the diff in "Ionian" and Major = none, nadda, zip, ziltch.

granted, there are many "major" scales, triads, etc-etc found all over the neck
BUT
if ya mean the old 1234567 M = M

RAWK!
