The Clarets striker netted a first-half equaliser for his team at Turf Moor, but goals from Everton's Samuel Eto’o (2) and Romelu Lukaku meant the search for a first win of the season goes on for Sean Dyche’s side.
Ings, who scored 26 goals for Burnley last season and was named as Championship player of the year, had missed the last few weeks with a hamstring injury before returning to action earlier this month.
In the Everton defence, he was up against senior Three Lions Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines before second-half substitute Ross Barkley entered the fray for the Toffees as he continues his return from injury.
Young Lion Nathaniel Chalobah also got a few more top-flight minutes under his belt after coming off the bench for Burnley in the later stages of the game.
Elsewhere, one of Ings’ Under-21s squad mates was also on the scoresheet as Sammy Ameobi bagged for Newcastle United in their 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
Another of Gareth Southgate's Under-21s squad was in action there, with Eric Dier lining up in defence for the hosts before in-form striker Harry Kane came on in the second half after 67 minutes but couldn’t help in the search for an equaliser.
In the day's later game, Manchester United scored a stoppage-time equaliser against Chelsea at Old Trafford to rescue a 1-1 draw.
Didier Drogba headed Chelsea into the lead early in the second half, but a late strike from United's Dutch hitman Robin Van Persie ensured a share of the spoils.
England internationals Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones figured for the home side, whilst fellow Three Lions defender Gary Cahill played for Jose Mourinho's men.
There was also a substitute appearance for England U19s striker James Wilson, who came on for Louis van Gaal's side in the second half.
Ings could be back in action at Turf Moor for England too, as the Under-21s play Portugal there on Thursday 13 November. Tickets for that game cost just £10 for adults and £5 for concessions and are on sale now. Call 01282 70003 to buy tickets.
