I'm not sure that a clear distinction is universally recognized, although you could certainly try to draw one. Both implied and inherent powers are as opposed to explicit powers. An explicit power is one that is enumerated in the Constitution or an Act of Congress. If you wanted to distinguish implied and inherent power, implied powers would be ones that are not enumerated, but follow logically from ones that are enumerated. Inherent powers would then be those that are said to derive from the nature of a position. The idea of inherent powers is controversial in regards to the federal government. Check out the article on inherent powers linked below.

Are powers listed in the Constitution called implied powers?

Inherent powers are powers that a government has simply because it is a government. Those powers are guanteed in the Constitution via the "necessary and proper" clause and via Judicial pronouncements. Inherent powers are not listed. Enumerated powers are those powers that are listed in the Constitution.
