This is the one I use. None of the Perforce plugins really cover all of 
the features (like working with numbered changelists) very well. I 
settled on this plugin because it leverages some useful features in 
IDEA (like change highlighting in the editor window). Beyond opening 
for edits and other simple functions, I use p4v in the background for 
any complex work.
