You should be able to see the Application Pool and Website in IIS that you just created in Central Admin. However, it doesn't show up in IIS.
Furthermore, to make this bug even more bizarre.

And, I can go in and create a site collection as if the web application does exist.
But, when you go to the URL after you create the site collection for that app you get a HTTP 502 Error, because technically it doesn't exist.
