I am fairly new to JSP, been studying Java for about a year now.. My question is would an IDE make it easier to create JSP pages, and if so any recommended IDE's?

Hi,
IDE means ,Eclipse comes to my mind. Eclipse with WTP Plugin can help you in jsp.

1. If you need to know syntax and autocomplete feature you can go for wtp plugin withe ecilpse
2. If you want to build a rapid jsp page,I suggest you to design page in front page and filter the unwanted ones, and make jsp page.
3. WSAD has excellent jsp creation wizards

Many other IDEs are jdeveloper, weblogic workshop where you can design jsps too.

Regards
Karthik

Which assumes the use of WebSphere, probably one of the poorer choices for an application server.

Personally I use IntelliJ IDE.

<My 2¢>
The fundamentals of Servlet and JSP programming are best learned without an IDE. IDEs inject their own configuration and directory hierarchy issues that muddy the waters.
A good text editor, javac, a spec compliant servlet container (like Tomcat), and links to the relevant specs and APIs (both can be found in my signature) are the best tools to use while learning.

Once you can code, compile run, deploy, and debug a handful of servlet apps, then you may want to see if an IDE can speed up your development or otherwise make your life easier.
</My 2¢>

Amen, brother!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
