For a crop sensor camera?  No question, look at the 17-55IS.  In addition to the L-class image quality, it goes much wider on a crop sensor than either 24-xxx lens.  Another big plus for me is the wider max aperture; I shoot in areas where lighting is marginal, and even if you do not use the widest aperture, autofocus makes use of it!  I get noticeably faster and more accurate AF with my f/2.8 lenses than with my f/4 lenses.  You also have that improved DoF control if you ever need or want it.
