If you already have Java then all you need is a servlet container that has support for JSP.
Apache Tomcat is one of the most popular.
It's open source so it costs nothing to download and use.

Personally, I don't recommend using an IDE until you're comfortable setting your container and have written, compiled, and deployed a few web applications without one. Production environments won't be wrapped with an IDE and it's important that you understand how to configure and debug an application without relying on one.

The Apache Web Server is a different project and is not for Servlets/JSP.
I'm going to move this to our Apache Tomcat forum since it is more about installing Tomcat than JSP.

Assuming you're running a Windows system....

Go to this page:
http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi

Under "Core" download the Windows Service Installer, double click it, and it will walk you through the whole installation.
