Just a disclaimer, I haven't kept invicta but I'm just going off what I've heard.
I feel like they'd be a good species for beginners mainly in the founding stage, due to their hardy attributes and fast growth rate it would let the keeper gain experience with the ants quickly. I think it's better for a beginner to mess up with a disposable invasive rather then a native species, and then the beginner could then move on to a better species after they decide they've gained enough experience, get bored, or overwhelmed(I'd encourage killing the colony if you stop wanting them). As long as you contain the ants in a responsible way I really don't see much of a problem. In the end, if you honestly believe keeping a colony like that is something you can do then I'd say you should try it, just keep them responsibly and don't be afraid to kill them if they start being a problem.
