Depends on how I see those limpers. I am still a newbie myself, and I find that in the lowerlimits (which is all I have played 2NL, 5NL, 10NL), that the majority of the people at the table limp into every hand if there is yet to be a raise. For this reason, I tend to ignore limps and treat them the same as a fold. If the whole table has limped in, then it is more compelling for me to get in the pot as I am now getting very good odds
If you have noticed one of the players does not limp into every hand and only limps in when they have something good, I would respect it a little more, but in the low limits I am familar with, this type of player is very rare.
As for the size of my raise, I tend to do a standard 3 - 5 x bb. I don't want to go too high, because someone after me could easily have a good hand and I want to be able to get out if a re-raise from a good player comes.
