I would like to have a good explanation (in depth even) between these two commands

- show ip interface brief
- show interface brief

one shows the vlans and the other the physical ports

Thanks.

Looks like you've got the difference there in a nutshell.  When you want basic information on the regular data, Ethernet ports, you use the "show ip interface brief" command.  

When you want too look at basic information for all the ports, not just Ethernet, you use the "show interface brief" command.  This one not only shows the vlan interfaces, but also port-channels if you have any and management ports.

There is a little explanation of the "show interface brief" command at this website:

The only real difference is that the first command you mentioned scales the information back so that you only see the information you need at the time.

"show ip ...." shows you the L3 (IP) information

"show int ..." shows you the (L2 typically Ethernet) information
