For the learning the basics (and I mean VERY basics) you may be better off
with a text editor and a command line. This way you can learn about things
like the classpath, the compiler, packages, etc from a very low/basic level.
From there it depends on what you are doing. For basic desktop/GUI apps I
would suggest Netbeans for its visual designer. For anything Google
related (App Engine, GWT, Android, etc) I would suggest Eclipse. For web
applications either one will work rather well.
I have heard good things about IntelliJ but I have little first hand
experience with it.
I've never been much of a certification fan. I say let your open source
projects speak for themselves ;)
