Sounds like you base what you know on what you read. I've never driven the Lexus IS-F before but I can tell you that it isn't what I thought it should be because I read it in some magazine. There's a huge difference between the IS350 and F. I owned both.

On the bright side, it still carries the same ride and interior refinement that is expected from Lexus, and while I've never driven the IS-F, I had a big enough grin on my face when I put the pedal down in an IS350 to know the IS-F would be a hoot in a straight line.
As for the exhaust, the IS boards are reporting the tips being fake as well, but its not like the extra 3 inches was going to effect performance.
