It will depend on where in US you are working or going to work. Ofcourse there are deductions, you will have to pay taxes.
Also there's the H1-B "penalty". Reports are that H1-Bs typically get paid about 60% of what the going rate would be for non H1-Bs. Although you can find plenty of arguments about whether such a penalty exists and how much it really is.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

Besides the low salary, H-1B alien workers usually do not receive the benefits or perks (e.g., health insurance, paid vacations, 401K pension and training, etc.) - especially if the alien is working as a contractor/consultant.
In terms of the real income, a J2EE developer with 3 years experience would make:
Minimum salary depends on State minimum for H1 -B Visa employer has to pay state minimum .It varies but not low as 30000 USD pa .It some what between 40-45000 USD .For H1 B depends on exp and technolgy in demand.
On average you can get 50-60,000USD initally if this is your first job . On high end it may go up to 80 -90,000 USD pa .
