Yes, there is a check box named 'recursive' to set properties like
svn:ignore to all directories in the tree. But it will only get applied
to already existing directories and not to them later created ones.

Directories can't inherit the properties because you can checkout any
directory you want which would lack that properties if you only set it
to your other WC root (e.g. you set it on trunk/ but someone checks out
trunk/docs).
