Difference in Font rendering between Intellij IDEA and Android Studio on OS X


On my OS X El Capitan laptop, I'm running Intellij IDEA 15.0.4 (JRE 1.8.0_40, OpenJDK JVM), and Android Studio 1.5.1 (JRE 1.8.0_71, Oracle Hotspot JVM).  The fonts in the Editor Pane and elsewhere are rendered differently in the two environments, with the IDEA fonts being rendered "thicker".  

I'd like for them to be consistent, and I actually prefer the way it looks in Android Studio.  How can I switch the font rendering in IDEA to match Android Studio?  Do I have to switch JVM/JRE?  If so, how do I do that, and will it break anything else?
