If you look at the scope of the IRC it is for one and two family dwellings and their accessory structures, and town homes not over three stories. To exceed three stories you need to build to the IBC and you will not be able to use the IRC.

Table 504.4 regulates the allowable stories for IBC occupancies but what controls number of stories in the IRC?
