There is definitely a connection, the larger the intermolecular forces between two molecules of the same compound the higher the boiling point will be. This is because the forces between them are stronger and therefore more kinetic energy must be added to break these bonds. Any molecule with a higher amount of forces between itself and its surrounding molecules can be expected to increase in boiling and melting point.
There is a connection between boiling points and IMF strength. The stronger the IMF, the more energy required to break the bond, thus, requiring more heat. In essence, the stronger the IMF interaction, the higher the boiling point.
