Dimensions between object mode and edit mode inconsistent.

If I scale a plane primitive mesh in object mode at 4 feet using the dimension panel and then go into edit mode and use the mesh display -edge info, the dimensions read out at 2'x2'?.  I have the units set for feet/imperial. If I subdivide the plane into 16 quads, each one measures 6" x 6" or overall 2'x2' .When I go back into object mode, the plane measures 4'x4'.  This is very confusing to me. I would think that the dimensions ought to be consistent between object mode and edit mode.  What am I doing wrong? Please help.
