Building responsive website in IE8

I know that media queries are not supported in IE and below, so I am keen to understand how <IE9 browsers treat them? Do they just ignore any styling withing a media query and use the base styles? My aim is to build mobile up so does that mean that IE8 would use the mobile style?

Also what are my options for getting around this? I have read a little on respond.js or is it better to use a specific IE CSS instead or like the 320 and up framework it appends a class to the html tag when being viewed in <IE9 so that over-writing styles can be used but this will bloat the CSS will it not?

Any advice would be great.
