I'd look to see if there is a 3 month interest penalty if you cash in the I-bond within the first 5 years and combine this with that it is exempt from state tax but not federal tax unless you use the money for education or some other use that makes it exempt.

Just what I think you may be missing(I'd look into this some more),
