I really want to focus on my upper chest development and I was thinking of raising the bench so the incline is a lot steeper. Is that a good way to really target the upper chest?

I recommend starting your chest workout with 3 sets of an incline movement, bar or dumbbell and keep the angle of the incline at about 25-30 degrees.
