Yes solids have the strongest intermolecular forces because molecules are interacting so much that they are stuck together in solid form instead of bouncing off each other and moving far away in gas form.
Yes, solids have higher intermolecular forces, which is why we can think of the molecules composing a solid as being held together more tightly than those of a liquid or gas. A good way to remember this is to think about the Halogens and how F, the least polarizable of the group, is a gas, while Iodine, which is much more polarizable, is a solid.
