This isn't a stupid question at all.
In my opinion it depends on what kind of lifter it is. A beginner is going to grow best following a strength based routine because they have such low levels of strength to begin with. It doesn't matter how many supersets or drop sets you do if you can only bench 200 pounds you're not going to be big. Strength and size are more heavily correlated in the beginning.
However, once you've established a significant level of maximum strength than you'll gain more hypertrophy by doing more bodybuilding oriented training.
If someone more experienced than me wants to blast me down I'm all ears lol.
