In philosophical vernacular, at least, there is a distinction between the two:

"is identical with" means "looks exactly the same as", like two of the same kind of shirt

"is identical to" means "is the same thing as", like H2O and water.

Supposedly, this would make "identical to" a much stronger statement than "identical with", although who knows how much philosophical jargon coincides with typical/correct English usage ^____^
