So, the haste spells would give a character +1 extra attack and.....

+1 bonus on attack roll.

Could that be considered BAB or it is just an attack roll bonus?

Example: A level 5 Barbarian (+5 BAB), after being hasted, would have 6 BAB or +5 BAB and +1 bonus attack roll?

The bonus is to attack roll only.

Player's Handbook p.239:

A hasted creature gains a +1 bonus on attack rolls ...

It's attack roll.

BAB is short for "Base Attack Bonus," and although it has the word "bonus" in it, it's best to consider the entire phrase as a name. Unless a spell or effect specifically uses all three words together, the bonus to attack does not increase BAB.
