I'd increase the weight, otherwise you won't be making any progress. When starting out, maybe adopt a linear progression of 5 lbs per week for smaller movements and 10 lbs per week for the larger movements.

Eventually your progress will stall where you begin to fail to complete your sets & reps. This is when people usually start incorporating deloads as well as adopting nonlinear progressive loading.

As far as reps and sets, some workout programs use a hybrid rep scheme. Some start at 3x5, 5x5, 3x3, or something like 5,3,1 or even 5,3,1,1,1, and using different loads in each set appropriate for the number of reps.
