I know Construct2 is all about the GUI, but occasionally we need more control?

How do I actually write javascript code in Construct2? Is there a code editor or something?

You have two ways I know about:
- Execute Javascript via Browser Object
- Write plugins using C2 SDK

Ah ok, so as I understand it. Construct2 isn't really an IDE?

We have no idea what you call an ide, then again we have no idea what you need more control of either.
Best suggestion would be to download the free version, and do some tutorials.

C2 is not an "IDE" in the sense it has been made for one particular exporter, but if you really need more control, the SDK is the way to go (C2 plugins are actually just the way to tell the editor how to show it, and the exporter what to do with it, it being the condition or action you want)
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.
