I use a 2LOLL and 2LPLL (since I took a while off from cubing). I'm re-learning my 1LPLL right now, and will be working on 1LOLL afterward. But to answer the OP, yes 2LPLL is great, I like it a lot, and if you use the right algs, it makes a perfect stepping stone to the 1L method.
right clockwise 90 deg, left 180 deg, down face (the "bottom of the cube) counter-clockwise 90 deg, back face (opposite front) 90 degrees counter-clockwise), down face 90 degrees clockwise, back face 90 degrees clockwise, left face 90 degrees clockwise, back face 90 degrees counter-clockwise...
If both are on the F side, do a U2 and then a y2 so that the top front and back bottom are the wrong ones and then do M`U M (I learned a lot when someone told me that you have to have 2, 4, or 6 wrong edges).
I learned a basic (corners, then edges) method before going to intuitive F2L and I only plan to learn the idealized algorithms if I have major problems getting under a minute solve with what I'm doing now.
The problem with listing this:
[(r' R' U') (L D' L' U L) (R U' R' D R) U]
as an "E" permutation on this page is that the picture has the corners swapping side to side, whereas the algorithm will switch them from front to back. I feel that this needs clarification.
