Just my 2 cents:
I use static IPs on all my devices but I use "virtual" subnets to make the IP/device pair easier to remember. Explanation: for example I use IPs from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.9 for the servers, from 192.168.0.11 to 192.168.0.19 for the desktops PC, 192.168.0.21 to 192.168.0.29 for the VMs, ... I also have the DHCP attribued IPs on one of these ranges, 192.168.0.101 to 192.168.0.109 for example ;)
That is a very good way to organize them. I have similar strategy with set range 192.168.1.2-199 for DHCP specific assigned IP's according to my scheme and the range from 192.168.1.200-255 is the management hardware like IPMI, DRac , etc in which devices have their own static IP without DHCP intervention.
