Is the IS-5 still worth it compared to the IS-6 in the current meta? Now that i have the chance to buy it as a free-to-play through bonds i wonder if it's the right choice or should i wait for a better moneymaker premium?

On paper it seemed the best from the new crop of bonds tanks, even considering the preferential mm of the IS-6 B

For all it's good points it seems to have a worse accuracy than IS-3. And that is a terrible thing.  https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Tank:R113_Object_730

Short answer, neither are competitive with current MM and tanks. Go with Defender or twin barrelled Object if you want Russian prem hvy.
