You don't have to wait until sunset to enjoy the views, but it is very pretty around sunset. It is a tranquil drive no matter the time of day. If youre staying in the area for an overnight, and your schedule allows, drive it both early in day and sunset.

No bc they don't dhip daylight savings and it gets very dark in the desert bc of no light pollution. Early or before 1pm is best.

If it were my decision, I would drive in mid afternoon, pick a great spot for the sunset, and there are many in Sedona. Spend more than one day in Sedona so you have additional opportunities for great sunsets.
