Do it. Always.

Not if you just started and are happy, if less than a year in and no negative feelings, it's nice and productive to focus on current position and growth and enjoy a bit of stress free from constant job search and distraction of "grass greener on the other side" situations. If truly intriguing and you are open to leaving current place, sure.

You may not plan on moving. But who knows, maybe after talking to them you'll realize it's a great fit, and that's where you'll be happiest. It never hurts to see what's out there.
