US05 is my go to yeast. I have used S-04 but I just prefer American Style yeast. All in all, I would make your choice based on whether you would rather use an American or English yeast

Lemongrass Blonde / RYEteous Super Ale / Habnero Wit / XPA #2 / American Strong Ale / Baltic Porter

I'm not opposed to either one, to my limited knowledge they both have neutral, crisp, dry finish. However, i guess for an American IPA US-05 would be the better style choice
“Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drank, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.

The time that I used S-04 I didn't think it was very neutral and was completely different than US-05. That being said, I personally don't like to use english yeasts often although a lot of breweries with beers I like use them. I think it may have something to do with filtration or something and that my beers have a lot of yeast left so it doesn't leave as clean of a finish.

I may be wrong but I thought US-05 is more attenuative then S-04 as well. That could be a big determining factor in your choice
