Also, Should I keep the dips or just do tricep extension or another tricep exercice instead ?
I'm a big fan of Lyle's generic bulking routine. I've built most of my size from it. If you're not sure of your volume tolerance I would probably choose to start there if I were in your shoes. From there you could think about increasing volume with a 5th day if you felt it was needed. It's honestly the best baseline building routine for an intermediate over anything else out there. You'll learn a lot about how your body responds to evolve from there if you choose.

On your current routine I would drop dips for extensions.
