Is there a difference between Instant Dry Yeast and Rapid Rise Yeast?

The pizza recipe I'm making calls for instant dry yeast, but all I can find at the local supermarket is Fleischmann's RapidRise yeast. Are these two interchangeable?

Instant dry yeast (IDY) and RapidRise are the same. RapidRise is the name Fleischmann's gives to its instant yeast product.

Keep in mind these differ from active dry yeast (ADY) in that it does not require activation. The particle size of instant yeast is smaller than ADY and will hydrate during the mixing process.
