Dear Kada,

Not necessarily, it may depend on system considered and a strain applied. 
As example, for  an orthorhombic  strain (for B2 structure)  you can use ibrav 
by default.

Take your basis vectors for undistorted  lattice and multiply by the strain 
Do not forget to transform your atomic positions in the same manner.

Thanks Stegano G.  for the explanation how to apply CELL_PARAMETRS with ibrav=0.
