My first job is to scout out and bring back intel for my team. This way, they know which way to go, and where to ambush.
However, If I see a DD over-extending (on a CV match ??) into a cap early on, I immediately hit the F3, then do my best to take this ship out.
So much has been lost, so much forgotten. So much pain, so much blood. And for what? I wonder. The past tempts us, the present confuses us, and the future frightens us. And our lives slip away, moment by moment, lost in that vast, terrible in-between. But there is still time to seize that one last, fragile moment. To choose something better, to make a difference. -- Babylon 5

There is no specific ship class that I will go for first; however, I will avoid cruisers that have strong AA/Defensive Fire. Most of the time, my first target would usually be the bottom-tier BB or a smoke-camping DD. I can also get away with nuking the bottom-tier cruisers sometimes.
"I had to find myself another flagship because I could no longer exercise command from one which was shot to pieces."
9 out of 10 times, my first strike is against a DD.. I almost always run strike and send my planes to the closest cap 1st. This allows me to gather information on the red team, their CV and quite often take out a DD. Then I can recover my planes fast. If the other CV is AS, I will send 1 bomber squad towards his fighters while sending a strike in the opposite direction.. If conditions are right, I will TRY a CV strike, if not, I will hit whatever ship spotted my planes. From this point on, the rest of the match gets totally situational.
