I don't like the original clouds and I wanted to know how to edit it so I can change it to something more realistic.

That's a very "not easy," question. You can start looking in these threads:

When doing clouds, the iceconfig.ini or enbseries.ini Clouds controls are important as well. The clouds are "Said to be using a perlin noise function" which creates the clouds. The one from ice looks mostly black and white, like a vortex inwards - I'd upload it for you but my IV files drive is packed away at the moment.

So I downloaded icenhacner 2.1 and the sky texture looked alot better but I have a huge problem with red sky. The sun and clouds look good but the sky texture is red. How to I get rid of that?

Don't use Patch 6 or 7.
Ugliest patches because ENB doesn't fully support patches 6 and 7. icenhancer is essentially, ENB. icon14.gif

But I tried icenhancer on patch 4 and the graphics looked worse than on patch 7.

realistic clouds are always ressource demanding whatever the game . gta (like lot of other simulations) have pretty basic clouds . but if you manage to get the good lightning (sky brightness , cloud brightness ..) you can have good results

that doesn't answer my question. I like the sky texture that icenahancer has but I don't like red sky. How do I get rid of the red sky and don't downgrade to patch 4 because I will not do that no matter what you say.

Sorry friend, then you're doing it wrong. Red skies are a glitch of 1070. You need a ENB or ICENHANCER suite built around 1070. Chinagreen Elvis does one for 1070 I think.

Ok so I tried to use a different sky texture for the shaders but I don't like the sun, it's not bright enough. Everytime I use editIV and increase the value for sun brightness it doesn't do anything. It used to be at 1 so I put it to 60 and it still had no effect. So how to I change the sun?
