Are KickStarter and IndieGogo incompatible?

Are there licensing issues or other reasons for posting my project to only one crowdfunding site?

There's nothing in either of their terms that limits you from doing so.
In fact, Indiegogo's terms indirectly suggest Project Entities are "free to solicit other funding for the Project". Whether sourcing funding from both sites is a good idea for your particular project is another question...
