Is it really necessary to use "(IS (Infinite Stratos))" instead of Infinite Stratos when Neon Genesis Evangelion is not abbreviated as (NGE (Neon Genesis Evangelion))?
To answer your question, IS official website commonly refers the show title as IS＜インフィニット・ストラトス＞
If you look at even their DVD/BD releases, you will see IS＜インフィニット・ストラトス＞Blu-ray＆DVD 第1巻 instead of インフィニット・ストラトスBlu-ray＆DVD 第1巻. That is the same case of light novel releases.
On the other hand, Neon Genesis Evangelion never uses abbreviations in any of the official sources. Japanese official websites uses 新世紀エヴァンゲリオン or sometimes use Neon Genesis Evangelion.

So in short, those two cannot be compared.
