You don't really need an IDE, generally. A good text editor - I use
SciTE, but as alister said, there are as many viable answers as there
are posters - is all you need. Back when I wrote code in Q-BASIC,
VX-REXX, and then C and C++, I used IDEs, but even then the main
features I used were just smart text editors.

My preferred "IDE", these days, is Debian Linux with Xfce, which gives
me a convenient workspace in which to run SciTE plus a few dozen
terminal windows. One of them will be dedicated to source control
(git, hg, or whatever the current project uses); some of those do have
GUI interfaces or editor integration, but I find it easiest to use the
command line. Another generally is for running the program, unless
it's one that permanently stays running (or is being remotely
manipulated via a TCP/IP link). Then, depending on what I'm doing, I
might have a few more... maybe a music player (or maybe that's VLC,
invoked via the Yosemite Project), maybe a few man pages, whatever
else I need. It's highly unlikely that anyone's written an IDE that
does everything I could possibly want, so I just use the computer's
desktop as that IDE. It can do anything! :)
