Instant yeast is a little more potent than active dry yeast and can be mixed in with your dry ingredients directly. It is generally easier to work with.

Active dry yeast works just as well as instant yeast, but requires being activated in a little bit of warm water before being added to the rest of the ingredients. Failure to properly activate it will result in your loaf not rising adequately.
