Bipolar 1 is NOT unipolar depression. Bipolar 1 is manic-depression where during the manic state the person can be psychotic. Bipolar 2 is hypomanic. The highs are not as highs and often the "high" is irritability, rage, and racing thoughts. During hypomania a person does not go psychotic.

I know that some doctors in the UK defines these 6 or 7 types of bipolar illness. But most places it is Type 1 or Type 2 with Type 2 having a lot of various types/symptoms (rapid cycling, ultra rapid cycling, mixed states etc). There is also medication induced mania.
