Does it make any difference or is Hyper training just for making the bad IVs a bit better?

You could say that Hyper Trained IVs are situationally better because they let you have any Hidden Power that you want without restricting your IVs.

For example, a Pokémon with Hidden Power Ice can have a maximum if 30 Attack IVs (iirc), but with Hyper Training you don't have to lose that extra stat point.
breeding will use the ivs not hyper trained stat

Rather than actually changing a Pokémon's IVs, Hyper Training sets a modifier for the game to treat that stat as if it had an IV of 31.

In other words, they have the exact same effect on the stat.
