IIRC iCal only can download from the Google calendar it can't upload to it. Not sure why or where I read that but it was on the Mac someplace.
What you could do is install the Thunderbird Email program that has an add-on to sync with google calendar and add your events in Thunderbird and they will show up in iCal. You don't have to use Thunderbird as your email program. Just us it as your Calendar program.

I have an a HTC Android phone, and an LG Andriod before the HTC, and both have no problems integrating with my mail providers, my Windows PCs and my Mac. I add a contact on my phone or on any of the computers, even the OS X Contacts (Lion) or Address book (Mt Lion), and it shows up across all other devices. I add a calendar event on my phone or on my PCs or online at Google and it shows up on all other devices. This even happens when I add in on my Mac if I add that event to my calendar in Thunderbird.
The only time it doesn't happen is when I add it to the built in Apple Mac ICal (Calendar) program.
I don't see how getting an iPhone would help the OP with the problem of iCal not syncing Up TO Google calendar. That is clearly a iCal problem and has nothing to do with the phone he is using.
I would strongly recommend an iPhone. The integration with the Mac and email services is just phenomenal.
