Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

Google is sniffing the user agent and changing behavior for IE. So they are clearly in the wrong either way, having IE "pretend" to be webkit is clearly not a solution suitable for the modern web.

Yes, they are working around IE limitations and bugs. I think most web-developers know well that IE is the most problematic browser still. So, for complex web-apps you sometimes just need to special case IE to make it working in some way.
