Post-interview thank-you letters, like many other things, are a matter of geography. In our neck of the woods and outside the tech writing niche they are perceived as pretty weird. If you already write one, don't just say 'thank you for your time', add something like 'I am now even more confident I can successfully fill the position at your company' or some such. Tie it to something that has been mentioned during the interview.
My 2 cents,

On a related note for discussion: As a hiring manager of
technical writers, how valuable do you find post-interview
thank you letters?
