At the end of the day just do whatever makes you more productive. If an ide makes you code faster and with less bugs than by all means use it regardless of language. Really the biggest downside of an ide is just that you need a more powerful machine to run it which is not too big of a problem in my opinion.
I use PHPstorm at work and I feel it is very helpful particularly when you have to work on someone else's 8 year old code in a part of the code base you have never looked at before.
