Maybe he's the first fire dragon, and if he tried to stop Acnologia... he's pretty damn strong xD
Every Dragon we've seen so far adressed him respectfully. Especially Atlas.
As for me it seems that he should be among the strongest if not the strongest among Draghons (if we don't count Acknologia).
Well he besides Acnologia holds the title of a King. He is descibed as the "One And Only Igneel". His power is said to be able to burn all evil.So yeah he is a top dog under the Dragons.
Considering that he's still alive after not being able to destroy Zeref's END Magic 400 years ago, and that Natsu is currently the strongest DS, I'd say that he's only beneath Acnologia.
Shouldnt there be a dragon king that is stronger than all of them?
the way his legacy and lore are developing i would say hes the strongest or close to the strongest short of acknoligia (i never spell that right)
atlas certainly respects him highly

Igneel is the king of fire dragons. His fire is the strongest, blah blah. He's respected by all, feared by many. He's one of the strongest dragons, that's for sure. Acnologia isn't exactly a dragon, so I wouldn't say Igneel can't be the strongest. DSs can somehow assimilate other elements (Iron Shadow, Fire Lightning), so they're hax from the start.
He is obviously weaker then E.N.D--which probably means that Igneel is weaker than Zeref who created E.N.D.
I think Zeref became obsessed with dragons and tried to created his own but instead he created demonic monsters.
igneel is the strongest fire dragon among the fire dragons.
^ Where was it shown that he led dragons?
Igneel is the second strongest dragon after Acnologia but I believe he can defeat Acnologia even though he's not as strong as Acnologia because he has the will to fight.
Yes atlas is an obvious fire dragon because his entire body is covered in flames but thats just him, most fire dragons won't have a body as firey as atlas flame but thats because his fire always burns forever.
Igneel is probably the 2nd strongest character in the fairy tail zeref/acnologia being the 1st (consider them the same since acnologia was made by zeref or was made into dragon by zeref and acnologia is pretty much his to use as he pleases)

Also theres a chapter where he speaking to other dragons says "its almost time to make our move the dragon festival is upon us."
