I want to align the author blocks into both lines and columns. My desired output is shown as below:

  Author 1               Author 2
Affiliation 1          Affiliation 2

  Author 3               Author4
Affiliation 3          Affiliation 4

What is the best way to do this with IEEEtran? I tried \author \and, but it cannot align columns also. Can we do it without using minipage?

With option conference or peerreviewca you may use \and. But if your group of author name and affiliation is to small, the four groups will be placed horizontal:

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}

\begin{document}
\title{Title}
\author{%
  Author 1\\Affilation 1
  \and Author 2\\Affiliation 2
  \and Author 3\\Affiliation 3
  \and Author 4\\Affiliation 4
}
\maketitle
\end{document}

enter image description here

But you may simply fake need of more horizontal width at each group:

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}

\begin{document}
\title{Title}
\author{%
  \makebox[.5\linewidth]{Author 1}\\Affilation 1\\
  \and \makebox[.5\linewidth]{Author 2}\\Affiliation 2\\
  \and \makebox[.5\linewidth]{Author 3}\\Affiliation 3\\
  \and \makebox[.5\linewidth]{Author 4}\\Affiliation 4\\
}
\maketitle
\end{document}
