In brief: Depends
It depends on your body's demand, as well as whether your intention is to build muscle mass.
Protein is used for enzymatic development as well as muscle build. You should adjust your protein intake based on those needs.

In brief: Protein
Your body can only absorb so much protein.
A good rule of thumb is 30g of protein takes about 3hrs to be fully absorbed.
