Actually, I'd recommed you stay in the airport.
Unless you're staying in a hotel there's actually not a whole lot to do in Dubai, from personal experiences. They city is NOT particularly attratcive for a quick poke around for several reasons...the oppresive heat and spread out nature of the place being the main two. The tourist information desk at the airport is an absolute joke as well, so don't bother there.
And be aware that if you don't have a boarding pass for an onward flight and can't get one until checkin opens, you wont be allowed back into transit, where the aircon is a welcome relief, despite the crass gaudy interior fittings of the terminal.
So personally, I'd just stay in transit with a good book or a few magazines. There just isn't really much to do in Dubai other than shop and you can do that at the airport in far greater comfort.
