Not that I know of offhand - never looked for that.  You can check the doc.

But if you really want that then it sounds like you do not want _incremental_
search in the first place.  In that case, just use the non-incremental search
commands: `search-forward' etc.  Transport yourself back to the 1970s and enjoy.

On the other hand, if you just want to have certain editing commands/keys
automatically initiate Isearch editing (what `M-e' does), then you can customize
option `isearchp-initiate-edit-commands'.  (You need Isearch+ for that
possibility - see below.)

I recommend the Emacs doc, also.

If you use Isearch+ then the prompt keywords "Wrapped" and "Overwrapped" are
highlighted in a different face, so you can notice easier that wrapping is

(Prompt keywords are also highlighted for regexp, word, and multi-buffer
searching.  If you do not want such highlighting then just customize the faces
for any of these to look the same as face `minibuffer-prompt'.)

And in Emacs 24+, the mode-line lighter gets the same face whenever Isearch is

Isearch+ is here:
