The main difference is in the avionics. The IAF Block 52+ has mostly Israeli Avionics.
I don't know about any external difference.

The HAF 52+ got the tail fairing (As the Israeli C/D's and A/BM's have), and the IAF 52+ doesn't have those.

Israel's 52+s seem to have a lot more external sensor lumps'n'bumps - probably for self defense e.g. missile launch detection, RHAW etc.
