I think it depends on what your career goals are. Agreed analytical chemistry is a more broadly useful class, since quantitative analysis is useful in just about any scientific field. On the other hand, if you're interested in catalysis, biochemistry, or some sub-fields of pure synthetic chemistry, inorganic chemistry may be more relevant. Also, there's something to be said for choosing a course that you're just interested in. I personally feel that inorganic chemistry is just more interesting. I never took a formal quantitative analysis/analytical chemistry class (actually, neither my undergrad or graduate level university offered one). I picked up what I needed to along the way. For most academic scientific research, anything beyond the basic principles of quantitative analysis isn't really that important.
As far as difficulty, I would describe it as somewhere in between general chemistry and physical chemistry. Concept-driven. Unlike orgo it's not very memorization heavy. And unlike gen chem, you won't be doing a whole lot of calculations either. In that sense it's more like physical chemistry, but without all the math.
