Stronger the better. In my opinion you can never have enough back or tricep strength.

I like dips a lot for the beginner, instead of say doing overhead dumbbell extensions or push downs, just as an overall upper body development and strength building tool.

Beyond that I think it's really up the the individual. I reached a point after 12 months where I was dipping with 90 pounds and it was hard to continue with progression.
