I'm not really qualified to answer this one but I'll give it a shot.
They both accomplish the same goal, remote email access.
Imap has more features.
you can leave your mail on the server, to be accesed from many places.

do I have any mail?
Cool lets download it to this machine
Okay seeya later
Imap has had lots more holes in it. It's 6 of one half-a-dozen of the other
in your situation.
