The main aspect of IV that I'd put over V is story. I do think V had a bigger story in terms of the number of places you go and things that happen, but it doesn't develop the five principal characters all that well whereas IV does this much better in less time with a bigger cast. I do think people go a bit overboard bashing V's story though.

Also 4 is based on the DS version of FF4 so it has a 3D makeover whereas FF5 is close to the original aesthetic but at a much higher resolution. Some people like this, some people don't. IV also has voice acting.

Personally, now that I'm at the point where I've played these older FF games time and time again, both recently as well as in the 90s, FFV is the one I find there to be the most reason to keep coming back to because the job system allows for so much variety as well as for making optimized gestalt characters.
The one that I really want to play is Final Fantasy X...
