By standard, I mean the accepted way of indenting IF in common

Well, (put 'if 'common-lisp-indent-function '(nil nil &body)) is
not mode-local, so it will affect indentation of IF in all modes
that use common-lisp-indent-function to indent.

Emacs lisp IF is (if TEST THEN &REST ELSE), while common lisp IF
is (if TEST THEN ELSE).  The conventional mode of indenting IF in
Emacs lisp is:
(if test

whereas in common lisp:

(if test

(since only the one else-form is allowed).  It is this latter
indentation that is affected by the above suggestion.
