Cutting and Losing Strength

Alright i started bulking about 2 montsh ago. Put on about 14 lbs so far and weigh 205. I want to get to my goal of 215 before cutting. Question though. Strength has gone through the roof and it’s lovely.

However, obviously once I begin cutting it is going to decrease. Im wondering if there is any acceptable amount of strength decrease while cutting IE// Decrease 10 lbs in bench, 20 in military press,10 in squat, along with 10 lbs of fat(hopefully). sort of like acceptable fat gain with trying to bulk if u know what I mean.
