English contractions

Do you normally pronounce "I'll" and "all" identically?

It'd be nice if you could come to the party.
It'd rained the entire week.

For you, is "it'd" pronounced the same way in both sentences?

Please tell me where you're from!

ETA:
For me, I normally pronounce "I'll" and "all" identically, even though I can clearly hear the difference. Then again, I also normally say "intil" for "until", and "sence" for "since".

I ask the second question because I was watching this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzhjD-XrYjg&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL) and had to watch 9:50-10:25 several times. What she says is true for me only for the contracted form of "it had". For the contraction of "it would" I say d/. Tell me I'm not alone?
