Is the increase cost of the 50mm f/1.4G worth the cost over the the 50mm f/1.8G.

Not for me. But I speak as an enthusiastic amateur on a tight budget.

If I was a working pro, it probably would be worth it to me.

I love the f/1.8 primes and have the 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm. Cost me about $700 for the set (a little more today) and I think it's a terrific line up of glass for the money.
