The IHG credit card has long had a split personality. There was one offer that was the “official” offer (it has a landing page with an explanation of the offer) and offered 60,000 IHG points and the “unofficial” offer (no landing page, right to an application page with no mention of the offer) that offered 80,000 IHG points.
Now, that barrier has come down and the 80,000 IHG offer has received an official landing page and offers a $50 statement credit!
EDIT: A reader pointed out that when you click the Apply button, it says the offer is not available and redirects to the 60K offer. This link was just added to the wiki recently so it may be possible that it is not meant to be live yet. I will leave this post up as the link may come online shortly.
My apologies for the confusion. I saw the link at the Flyertalk wiki and had not thought to click through to apply at this time. I will edit the post when the application link is working. If anyone notices it being valid before I do that, please let us know in the comments!

With the IHG Point Break hotels, this bonus can get you a potential 16 free nights at various hotels! By far, that is the best offer for potential free nights with hotel credit cards!
This is a tremendous bonus! Even though everyone that applied through the old page received the bonus, it is really nice to see an official landing page this time. Plus, you get the $50 statement credit! Since there is no annual fee for the first year, you are automatically coming out $50 ahead!
