So, is it OK to just build apps for Jelly Bean now, or still not a good idea?

You could conceivably target JUST ICS and up, but as Chris and Ian say, you're potentially giving up 1/3 of your audience.

I guess if you were able to see the version that most of your users use (for an existing app), that would be a good barometer of where to start.

I wouldn't stick with just JB though unless it was a very specific API requirement, if only because so many 2012 phones still don't have JB updates.
