Why don't you build ib_sql from the project that is in your IBO root directory? It doesn't have all the eye candy or dumbing-down of IBExpert but is definitely closer to the coal-face if you're the sort who likes to learn by doing. It has a nice script interface, too.

IMHO, scripts are the right way to do things, once you have established a sense of direction with your design. You can go back to them to see what you did; you can modify them if you want to build your database a little bit differently; you can ANNOTATE them and thus have an ongoing documentation trail.
