Sorry for the stupid question. I plan on staying on strong lifts, I know it's a strength program but will size come with it as long as I am eating right?

Show me Someone with no muscle who around squats 400, benches 300 and deadlifts 500.

Caloric surplus = Size,
not Program

Don't expect any arm growth from strong lifts without adding direct work.I recommend icf 5x5, check it out, it's has additional accessory work after the 5x5 which I perfer.

Can I just add bi and triceps at the end of each day

I'm 6'2" tall with long arms so it's hard to get big looking arms anyways. In the past when I lifted my chest and arms were the last thing to start getting big. Should I do arms at the end of every workout or on off days? And would it benefit me to do incline bench instead of oh press?

You just started strong lifts about a week ago. You need patience. If you could get huge and strong so quickly, everyone would be lifting. It takes patience. Quote:

Just keep doing strong lifts, eat in a caloric surplus, and there you go. Simple as that.

Ofcourse they will grow, barbell/pedlay row = elbow flexion and bench/ohp = elbow extension.
Triceps long head (the biggest) won't get much training in that program though, so if he want's a good pair of triceps he should add a tricepsextension, either performed standing/seated behind the head or lying with a full ROM (like this).

Both groups trained for 8 weeks following a linear periodization model. Measures of elbow flexors and extensors 1-repetition maximum (1RM), flexed arm circumference (FAC), and arm muscle circumference (AMC) were taken pre- and post-training period. Both groups significantly increased 1RM for elbow flexion (4.99% and 6.42% for MJ and MJ+SJ, respectively), extension (10.60% vs 9.79%, for MJ and MJ+SJ, respectively), FAC (1.72% vs 1.45%, for MJ and MJ+SJ, respectively), and AMC (1.33% vs 3.17% for MJ and MJ+SJ, respectively). Comparison between groups revealed no significant difference in any variable. In conclusion, 8 weeks of RT involving MJ or MJ+SJ resulted in similar alterations in muscle strength and size in trained participants. Therefore, the addition of SJ exercises to a RT program involving MJ exercises does not seem to promote additional benefits to trained men, suggesting MJ-only RT to be a time-efficient approach.
