IPL'ing daily: Good or bad?

Is there any advantage/disadvantage to IPL'ing daily? We have been automatically IPL'ing in the wee hours of the morning since our S/38 days. We do not have a HA need, and no need to have the system going from midnight to 5:00 a.m. I think it's a good idea to IPL daily, but I am hearing this is a bad idea. Can you give some reasons or considerations on this issue?
If you have the luxury of IPL'ing daily, go for it! It will do no harm. It will clean up temp storage and other temporary things on your system.
