Too much flash?

I recently got the HVL-F20S for my NEX-5.

Now I find that I'm almost always using the flash set for bounce indoors.  Usually I can safely set the ISO to ISO 400 and set my shutter to 1/160 and WB set for flash varying the aperture as needed.

A lens set to f/2 and lens turbo and the HVL-F20S  I almost never have to goto ISO 800 or ISO 1600 indoors.

Is it better style wise to use the flash or rely just on ambient lighting?

Am I relying on the flash too much?

In what indoor situations would you opt to leave the flash down and crank the ISO?
