I have shot one before, but one out of 80 or so weddings isnt very much.

That being said, I dont ever offer to shoot it.

I attend the rehearsal whenever possible, will bring a camera, and will take some shots... but it's not a full shoot...

my main goal at the rehearsal is meeting the wedding party and parents...

When I was cheaper (around $1500) I shot them for every wedding. It became less common around $4k-$5k. After I upped my prices from there, I've never been asked once.

I remember them being really, really easy. Sort of a way to get to know the whole party. There's no staging, or anything. Just shoot what happens for about an our, or so.

Yes, especially when people are seeing each other for the first time in years. Fun to get those spontaneous shots.

We just had a wedding where we were invited to it. Unfortunately we weren't able to make it, but it would have been fun. Instead, we shot the rehearsal dinner.

Attended a few but not to "shoot" with the intent to deliver images...moreso to check lighting levels/layout/etc etc.

I will attend the rehersal if the venue or officiant is new to me. My main goal is to ensure that I have a good handle on how the event will unfold. I have never actually shot a rehearsal.
