What is the difference between the size and impliedFontSize on a text layer? I'm confused now

As my title describes.
I read the font size on top of the text layer to target the comparison, if the font size I read from the text layer is greater than a base value I have set, then the layer is set to the original font size, otherwise it is set to the base value. Now, I’m not quite sure of the difference between size and impliedFontSize, and I’m not sure which size I need to use.

impliedFontSize is the size after transformations, such as scale. This is also the value actually shown in the fontSize input in the toolbar, so if your font was 18pt and you scaled your layer by 2, it will show 36pt there. You can still read out the original size via fontSize though.
