Why would something from a totally different planet be comparable to us on any way?
Most life in the Galaxy would likely be like most life on Earth , intelligent in it's own way but incapable of understanding anything other than its own environment and their life within that environment but some , like us , would likely look at their own night sky and wonder what is out there and perhaps over time attempt to find out .... in my opinion.
You're basing this on what exactly?
For all we know evolution itself is simply a product of the earth's environment.
It just seems kind of ridiculous to start by assuming they'll be even remotely like us.

Remember AI does come into play as well so your question could be changed to ask what is the IQ of the most advanced computer systems to date
Ok I have two hypotheses one
of them is they have already landed but
they accidentally arrived during comic-con and then and no one could
distinguish them from any other costumes that were being worn and then they left
because no one cared that they came so
that's it's a remotely remote possibility but I'm allowing that in the
probability of this all right so another possibility is that they took a good look at us and concluded there's
no sign of intelligent life on earth not worthy of their attention a third
possibility there may be more but these
are the three that I carry with me is that they are so much smarter than we are
by the way what would that take not much but what's the next closest animal to humans and intelligence
