Funny because I had the exact opposite problem. When I was learning to stop a few months ago I could use the outside edge on my inside foot, but not the inside on my outer foot.

My problem was, and came from playing roller hockey, that I would bend my outside foot trying to make the blade less perpendicular to the ice...(that's confusing...instead of the blade being like this | it was more like this /). I started stopping better when I started thinking about shaving the ice instead of digging into it. This probably doesn't help because you seem to be doing fine with your outer foot, but if you keep at it I'm sure you'll get it.
