If I create an image and double the dpi to 180, GIMP shows it in the

it display at half the size.

DPI is pretty much irrelevant for displaying on screen. 100% zoom
displays each pixel in the image as one pixel on screen.

Not if you disable the "dot for dot" mode. Then gimp takes the display
dpi into account and you can watch your documents in their "real" size.
