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

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
