We study inclusive and diffractive dijet production in electron-proton and electron-nucleus collisions within the color glass condensate effective field theory. We compute dijet cross sections differentially in both mean dijet transverse momentum P and recoil momentum Δ, as well as the anisotropy in the relative angle between P and Δ. Our results cover a much larger kinematic range than accessible in previous computations performed in the correlation limit approximation, where it is assumed that |P|≫|Δ|. We validate this approximation in its range of applicability and quantify its failure for |P|≲|Δ|. We also predict significant target-dependent deviations from the correlation limit approximation for |P|>|Δ| and |P|≲Qs, which offers a straightforward test of gluon saturation and access to multigluon distributions at a future Electron-Ion Collider.
