Both IELTS and Duolingo are accepted in the USA. While Duolingo is an equally valued and recognized English proficiency test, the most widely accepted test is still the IELTS. So I would suggest you going ahead with IELTS. 

To pursue an MS in Computer Science in USA, you can consider the following universities:
Stanford University

Harvard University

California Institute of Technology

University of California-Berkeley

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The average tuition fees for studying an MS in Computer Science in the USA for a Private University is $35,000 (INR 26,00,00)/ year and Government University is $30,000 (INR 22,50,000)/ year

You can also consider the following scholarships for doing an MS in computer science if the expense is a bit too much: 

Tata Scholarship

Fullbright Scholarships 

Chevron Scholarship 

Let me know if you need any more information or assistance from my end for your application.

 If you're considering higher education in the USA, the choice between IELTS and Duolingo English Test depends on the requirements of the universities you're applying to. Both tests are widely accepted by US universities for demonstrating English language proficiency.

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a traditional English language proficiency test that assesses listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills. It's accepted by thousands of institutions worldwide, including universities in the USA.

On the other hand, the Duolingo English Test is a newer option that can be taken online from anywhere with internet access. It assesses proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking through a series of interactive exercises. Some universities accept the Duolingo test as an alternative to traditional English proficiency exams like the IELTS.

Before deciding which test to take, I recommend checking the specific English language proficiency requirements of the universities you're interested in. Some universities may accept both tests, while others may have a preference for one over the other. Once you know the requirements, you can choose the test that best fits your preferences and schedule.

As for the list of universities in the USA offering Master's in Computer Science programs, here are some renowned institutions:

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Stanford University
Carnegie Mellon University
University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley)
California Institute of Technology (Caltech)
Harvard University
Princeton University
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
University of Washington
Columbia University
These universities offer top-notch Computer Science programs with excellent faculty, research opportunities, and resources. Be sure to research each university's program curriculum, faculty expertise, and available resources to find the best fit for your academic and career goals.
