GIMP does use the IJG quality scale.

Blame Adobe for this. The JPEG FAQ states that differences between
different programs have always been there, some even going as far as
reversing the quality to a compression. See
Also, 95% is the highest practically usable quality setting, anything
higher does not have an influence on the pixels anymore (although it
might be useful for researchers who are working on the algorithms).
The patch currently attached to bug
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63610 might help to end the
problem about which setting should be the default - if quality is
persistent, you set it once.
