There is no difference, they both serve the same purpose, but you should prefer to use __openerp__.py, since it can be expected for __terp__.py to be deprecated.

The __terp__.py is a legacy from the time when OpenERP was named "Tiny ERP". For backward compatibility, has been supported in more recent versions, but the current and proper name to use now is __openerp__.py.
