This will depend on the account type you are referring to. 

On a CFD or spread account you can set up the conversions to take place automatically or at the end of the day.
On a share account you can set up a 'manual' option to convert as/when you want to.
For UK clients you cannot change your ISA settings. 
For all these please see the image below for the location in MyIG.

You can also open additional accounts which are denominated in different currencies. For example a CFD account which holds USD. That means all US trades can just be executed in that account type. You can do this in the dashboard of MyIG.

In addition, can I get clarification that any gains earned is still under the tax free  "gambling / speculation" wrapper ?
