First-half goals from Esteban Cambiasso, Mario Balotelli and Dejan Stankovic all but wrapped up the game, but Patrick Viera and Maicon made sure of it in the second half.
Earlier, Amauri equalised for Juventus to draw 1-1 at home with Fiorentina.
The Brazilian scored from close range in the 19th minute, 13 minutes after Juan Vargas had scored for Fiorentina.
Inter now have 19 points at the top of the table, with Sampdoria next on 16 who meet Lazio on Sunday.
Juventus and Fiorentina each have 15 points. Genoa remain fifth with 13.
Inter took an early lead after Cambiasso reacted fastest to a mix-up in Genoa's area to put his side ahead in the sixth minute.
The goal was a fair reflection of Inter's dominance and they doubled the lead in the 31st.
Javier Zanetti won the ball in midfield, found Wesley Sneijder, who passed on for Balotelli to slide the ball past goalkeeper Marco Amelia.
On the stroke of half-time, Dejan Stankovic wrapped up the match for Jose Mourinho's side.
Amelia hit a weak clearance and, from just inside Genoa's half, the Serbian calmly volleyed into an unguarded net.
"In the first half, I would say it was a perfect display,'' Stankovic said.
"We had a number of goal-scoring chances and took most of them.
"In the second half, we tired a lot but still managed to score twice. To come to this stadium and win 5-0 shows that we had an excellent game.''
In the 67th, Patrick Viera scored his first of the season after being set up by Sneijder, and then five minutes later Maicon powered into the area to blast home the fifth.
Fiorentina took the lead when Stevan Jovetic cut in from the left wing.
The Montenegrin slipped the ball behind the defence, and Vargas flicked the ball over goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.
Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta then passed up two opportunities to draw his side level. First, he shot straight at goalkeeper Sebastien Frey after having turned defender Massimo Gobbi.
Then, in the 18th he sliced the ball wide from close range, after Fabio Grosso had found space to cross from the left wing.
Iaquinta was involved when Juventus equalised in the 20th.
Christian Poulsen picked him out behind the defence, and he squared for his strike partner Amauri to tap into the empty net.
"I'm happy with my goal, if not the result,'' Amauri said.
"We should have done better. We have to try and do better.''
Fiorentina felt they should have had a second when Vargas curled home a free kick, but the goal was ruled out for Dario Danielli fouling Giorgio Chiellini.
In the second half, both sides seemed to content to save energy for upcoming Champions League matches.
Amauri went close with a header, while Alberto Gilardino could only shoot wide in injury time when the ball ran to him in the box.
