The problem with Inner Flame isn't so much the time it takes - there are numerous group content situations where you could safely stand pumping out the morale, but the amount of morale healed for time taken is just awful. If the healing output from IF were upgraded (and not just the extra 10% for 2 blues) then it might become a reasonable use of the time requirement.
Currently, as stated above, 5 yellows (or at least 4 if PAAI is a requirement) is much better than many blues for this type of role. Your healing output will be about the same, but you will achieve a far greater reduction to incoming damage.
 And many others where you couldn't, of course.
 Even as a group heal.
