Black ice or turrets for better defense.

But i recommend u to upgrade the virus armies and server farms, b coin mixer so u can get core level 5 faster and get another turret ,program library,to face other strong code gates.

Anyways,u can decide on your own.

Well you have the correct idea with levelling Sentries first. However, one tip, a high level sentry will overwrite a lower sentry strength when it reaches it. So you don't need to keep sentries at a parallel level. You can afford to level one and keep the other a couple of levels below.

It terms of Turrets over Black Ice. At a lower level I would pick Turret over Black Ice. Mainly because you only have one Black Ice and taking it out for upgrading weakens the network a lot. Also Black Ice at low levels are weak anyway and upgrading them doesn't really add much to a defence.

This changes at a higher level once you have three turret and two Black Ice. The strength increase of Black Ice vs Turret is huge and you should upgrade Black Ice (or at least one of them) before Turrets.

And GoodKing is correct. Don't spend that much time at Core Level 4. Core Level 5 gives you extra security nodes. Get there asap.

Core level 7 is also another key Core level. All levels below that only lets you level your security nodes once. At Core level 7 you can upgrade three times. It's a real consolidation point in the game. Where, for the first time, your defence can actually start to defend well.
