See: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3682

"When a static page is being used as the front page of your blog, the  
is_home() function returns false. There is no simple function for  
determining "front of site, regardless of blog or page""

which is where is_front_page() comes in, Returning true for ( Current page  
is front page ) Or ( Current page is displaying index of latest posts)
