IVF vs. IUI

Setting: A few years in the future, but set in a normal universe. Massachusetts is the state they're living in.
Search Terms: IVF, IUI, and artificial insemination on Wikipedia, Googled IVF and  then IVF for same sex couples. Also googled IUI - twins and chances of twins.

Scenario: A lesbian couple have decided to have a baby. I was going to go with IVF at first, but then found multiple ways. I have no clue which would be best for them. I do know that it will take three attempts for the pregnant partner to successfully conceive, and that they'll have twin boys. (Not sure if they'll be identical or fraternal yet, however.)  Would identical twins be a possibility with these one (or all) of these treatments, or would they be fraternal only? 

And I also found Reciprocal IVF Treatment, something I am considering for them.Which one do you think is the best possible way to conceive? I was going to go with IVF at first, but IUI seems like a plausible scenario, too.
