Depends a lot on how patient you are and who you ask. Some people will say that drip acclimation isn't necessary at all while others will drip for hours. The thing is that if the water in the bag and in the tank are significantly different in terms of parameters you would have to acclimate the fish over several days if not weeks. If the parameters are basically the same you can skip it or do an hour or two.

For freshwater I never do. Only bother with that in salt. I'm a bag floater. I guess the closest I come is I pour in cup of tank water halfway through the float time.
