I disagree. Raising to $3 is going to chase the limper off most of the time, and with A/A you want a caller.
I play 6-max $25 NL, and bet much like Richly2008 describes. I open for 4BB, +1 for every limper. But a 3BB bet is standard and with A/A (and tight people left to act after me) I see nothing wrong with foregoing the extra 1BB bet. If that's Zach's standard betting pattern, then it's not good to deviate.
