I would have the fuel pressure system checked. It may be something as simple as a check valve allowing fuel to drain back to the tank and not being at the fuel rail to start the car.
Try this. Listen in your gas tank and have someone turn the ignition switch to the on position, but not start the car. You should hear the pump run for a few seconds. If it does, then turn the switch off. Turn it back on and see if it runs for a few seconds. Do this several times before attempting to start the car. Then start the car. If the problem is not there, then running the pump several times got fuel up to your rail and it wasnt starving for fuel. If by some crazy way this worked, you will need to find out why the fuel is running out of the lines. Bad check valve at the fuel pump. You might can install a check valve in the fuel delivery line and not have to open the fuel tank.
If it is not a fuel pressure or delivery problem, then I would look at the IAC and the controls for it under a cold start condition.
