confused about the international dollar and US dollar?

I'm supposed to get values for the Real GDP (PPP in US$) and Real GDP per capita (PPP in US$) of the Philippines over a long time period. Now, I can't find anything in US$, only international dollars. I read on Wikipedia that it's a hypothetical unit of currency that has the same purchasing power as a US dollar in some point of time.

Does that mean I can get the values of GDP based on PPP in international dollars and say that it's the same as the Real GDP in US$?

I'd really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance! :D

    There is no international dollar.There is GDP in US$ at market price, and GDP inUS$ (PPP).PPP is based on the the price of US dollar.Nominal GDP/PPP is GDP (PPP in US$)
