In reality, no gas is ideal. An ideal gas is a theoretical gas which we give certain properties which allows us to simplify calculations. We can use these calculations as well as correction factors to make calculations about real gases. The ideal gas law is used to make calculations about ideal gasses. The Van der Waals equation uses correction factors to account for the "un-idealness" of gasses.
