Browser-based form. I want people to fill out an expense form. There is an ExpenseDate field, a Mileage field, and a Mileage Allowance field.  If the ExpenseDate is < 1/1/2009 then I need the MileageAllowance field to show Mileage * 0.585  else Mileage * 0.55.

InfoPath doesn't use straightforward if statements. Please help.

Have a look at the screenshots. It's easier than you think.
I did it in the rules of the date field so the event fires when a date is entered.
