I'm going to go against the tide of recommendations and say that you should NOT bother with a hood for the EF-S 18-55 IS II.  The Canon EW-60C hood is so short and shallow that it really doesn't do much.  If you should ignore this advice be sure that you don't waste your money on the genuine Canon hood.  There are many third party hoods that will work just as poorly as the Canon hood.
