Some people do, but I don't.
Bottled beer you buy in the store almost always is about 2.4 volumes of co2. The problem with "priming to style" means flat beer in some cases (1.8 volumes is flat, as an example), or bottle bombs (some styles claim over 4 volumes is "to style"). I hate those calculators for that reason!
For beer, I use .75 ounces of corn sugar per gallon for a lower carbonation level, and 1 ounce of corn sugar for everything else. It works great.
I will do the same for cider- 1 ounce corn sugar per finished gallon of cider. That's a nice "beerlike" carb level.
