LAN Base contains the basic L2 features, whilst IP Base contains L2 features including basic routing (static routes, eigrp stub etc) and IP Services is the full enterprise feature set.  This Cisco blog explains it in better detail.

Basically, if you need dynamic routing for your network, you'll need IP Base

For an in-depth discussion, I will refer you to the Cisco Blog at

Quoted from the blog, "It includes all layer 2 functionalities covered by the LAN Base license, plus an impressive list of layer 3 capabilities including static routing, RIP, EIGRP stub, Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) stub and OSPF for Routed Access. Here EIGRP stub means that the switch participates in EIGRP routing as a stub and the EIGRP routes will not be extended to any downstream devices connecting to the switch. Also, notice that OSPF for Routed Access is designed specifically to extend Layer 3 routing capabilities to the wiring closet. It supports only one OSPFv2 and one OSPFv3 instance,"
