Version 5 was allocated to the experimental Internet Stream Protocol (RFC 1190).  The numbering convention is to allocate even numbers to the mainstream versions.

hi Mohsen1979,
    The version field 5 in the IP header is for Stream IP Datagram Mode (experimental).
It was for experimental purpose and never really made to the public.The next available version was 6 ,therefore the name IPv6.
refer to :
 http://www.itprc.com/tcpipfaq/faq-1.htm#what-ipv5
RFC 1819.
