If you like to walk and you support well dry-hot-weather, you can take 
the subway from the airport to Nuevos ministerios and walk from there 
down to chueca, then to sol, plaza mayor, la latina and take back the 
subway from where you end up to combine to the airport line in Nuevos 
ministerios again.

If you are not so inclined to walk and/or support that sun bath, you can 
connect in Nuevos ministerios and go straight to callao or sol to do a 
short walk around there, see plaza mayor and surroundings or you can go 
to tirso de molina, lavapies or atocha to check the reina sofia museum. 
You need much more time to visit "el prado" museum.

Anyway, Madrid is a nice place to walk around a few hours and airport 
subway station make it easy for your timeframe but be adviced that 
Barajas Airport is quite large and it takes around 20' to/from the S4 
terminal (if your flights are there).

Enjoy it!
