A high current ECR ion source producing 140 mA/100 keV D$$^+$$ ion beams for IFMIF accelerator is now under commissioning at Rokkasho in Japan, under the framework of ITER Broader Approach (BA) activities. The ion source for IFMIF is required to produce positive deuterium ion beams with a high D$$^+$$ ratio. After the mass separation in LEBT consisting of two solenoids, the D$$^+$$ ratio should be higher than 95 % with less molecular ions and impurity ions at the entrance of RFQ linac to be installed downstream. The ion species have been measured by Doppler shift spectroscopy between the two solenoids. With hydrogen operation in pulsed and CW modes, the H$$^+$$ ratio increases with RF power or plasma density and reached 80% at 160 mA/100 keV. The value was compared with that derived from the emittance diagram for each ion species measured by an Alison scanner installed nearby the viewport for the spectroscopy in the LEBT. It was found that the spectroscopy gives lower H$$^+$$ ratio than the emittance measurement.
