bpython isn't an IDE, it's a good interactive interpreter.
As for gedit as an editor... it's actually really bad, but fixable if
you install plugins. e.g., it doesn't have builtin support for case
sensitive / regexp search and so on, but these can be added so that
gedit becomes tolerable. In fact, one of gedit's main advantages over
many of its similar competitors (in particular I'm thinking of Kate)
is that the plugin support is very strong, so if it doesn't do what
you want, you can make it do what you want anyway.
So, install / enable plugins. Lots of them. Or use an editor designed
for programmers first, such as Kate or vim or emacs.
