If you have the LU decomposition you are done ? What else do you whant
to do -- solve it for IndentityMatrix[5000] ?

In the most cases the inverse is not needed -- only the solution
for a few number of right hand sides must be found and iterative
solvers make a good job on it.

Do you think, you can do a better job than
Fourier[] and


Good luck !
