"If you want a code to provide yourself with a "learning" experience, then
either code will do, but the IBC might be better since it is the "future"
path for codes."
Keep in mind that the IBC makes extensive use of references rather than
reprinting other codes, so you will also need an ACI 318-95, an AISC manual,
and possibly a few others depending on which material you work with to go
along with your IBC. Many engineers already have these, but if you do not
this could be a consideration.
