status of IRL racing cars

I just read the specifications of the Dallara Honda, in the news section this week.

Is IRL supposed to be the USA counterpart of Formula 1? When I look at engine specifications they appear to be at least 10 years behind, pumping only 650 BHP form a 3,5 litre V8. Do the rules not allow 10 or 12 cylinder engines? Is there a sort of limitation ot the electronics in order to maintain a conservative budget? Otherwise you might as well buy a nice Ferrari 641 and take the spoils home with you.
