I have a couple office chairs I plan to cover with some ikea fabric.  Do I need to (or should I) wash the fabric first?

If you plan on making it removable so you can wash them as they get dirty....then yes I would suggest prewashing.  If your just stapling it to the chair, then I don't think it matters.

Certainly yes wash it first, or consult a professional upholstery remake a chair is hard having time it will cost 6 to 8 hours.
