As Chip said, vi/vim integrates nicely with the shell and other
development tools.  Along with those tools, it provides a flexible and
powerful development environment.

It just doesn't do it in the way most people think of when they talk
about "IDEs".  

If the OP is looking for something more like Visual Studio or Xcode,
however, then I would repeat my suggestion to look at anjuta and geany.
Codelite and Code::Blocks might also be worth considering.
