If you plan to go to college outside the US, focus on IB courses, if you are going to college in the US, focus on AP courses. However, if one offers a course you just like better, take it. I know most colleges in the US still accept IB credit, it's just calculated differently. If you already know what colleges you are aiming for, check their AP/IB policy. You can also ask your high school counselor.
Depends on whether you are balanced or specialized. IB requires a multitude of subjects ranging from humanities to sciences to languages. However, for AP, you can choose any course combinations and there aren't as many limitations.
