Okay so I receive invites from my partner who uses Google calendar. I receive it at my iCloud.com email address (on both my Mac OSX 10.8.3 and iPhone 5). I know there's currently a bug in the Mac mail app when opening the attached invite.ics attachment it doesn't add the event to the default calendar I have set.... but that's another matter for Apple to fix.
So I open the email on my iPhone and click the invite.ics attachment and that opens my calendar and asks if I want to Add to Calendar. After the event is added to the default calendar, I open the calendar app and select the added event (grayed out). At the bottom there are buttons for Maybe, Accept or Decline.
Here's the problem - after I select Accept (or any of the choices) it never sends an email back to the originator so they know I have replied. On the Mac it does send a response.
Is there something I am missing???

I already sent feedback to Apple.

Another way to do it is that when you get the original email invite, in the body of the email invite there is a section asking you to accept, decline or maybe. You can click your response and then add the event to your calendar (or not if you are refusing).

No, you are not alone. I have just moved to a mac from a PC and found the calendar process a bit flakey.
I have tested this a lot.
- There is no option to get emailed responses to invitations - pretty dumb!
- If you sit and wait for the confirmations actually made to stack up in the calendar badge icon, or notification bar, you will be waiting a long time. (Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't
- The coloured ticks do stack up though and match the responses. This is good
- Resending an invitation worked in the Apple shop but has not worked since
- not all invitations seem to get through (a bit random as to which work and which don't)
- When you cancel the disastrous meeting, there is no option NOT to notify people (Apple developers have obviously not had to frequently reschedule global meetings)
- When you enter an invitee from your contacts, you have to be quick, since the auto completed address only stays up a second or two.
All a bit pants really, just like trying to stop an email being sent half way though a disastrous spell check! Very nasty Apple!
My advice is to use invitations with caution, manage it manually, or try MS Outlook.
Come on Apple, it can't be that hard.
