It is pretty clear. An IAM user that has a set of permission is called an IAM user. Set of or collection of IAM users is called IAM groups. 

IAM users have permanent credentials to directly interact with AWS resources whereas, in the case of IAM groups, it gives management convenience to manage the same set of permissions to users.
