Assuming you're using the protocol using an AMBER force field instead of GROMOS,
then probably the Acpype output is OK. Many people use it, but I haven't so I
can't comment on it. But if you're going to be parametrizing new things, you
should have a good understanding of the parent force field, what its assumptions
and parametrization methods are, and how parameters are validated. Then you can
assess how good of a ligand topology you have.
