Interchange File Format is the container file created in 1985 by Electronic Arts in cooperation with Commodore for Amiga to make a standard to make a file translation easier. It can contain music, graphics, text, etc., but it's mostly known as audio format, with other regular extension 8SVX.

This is a format of non-comressed audio, used mostly in Amiga games for sound effects. Later it was superiored by FLAC and WAV, so it's mosly absolete for now, but some populat players still support it, and even sdome emulators (like VICE) support recording to it.
