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.

Actually it helps from some angles (better than nothing).  I also use the hood to grab onto when focusing manually (makes a much better grip than the slim focusing ring).

If you should ignore this advice be sure that you don't waste your money on the genuine Canon hood.

Right, this particular hood doesn't include any interior "flocking," so the knock-offs will work just as well.
