Personally I haven't seen AP Poppy.
Only heroic charge takes anything from AP and it doesn't have good enough cooldown to base on this skill.
I have seen 3 ways of Poppy
- Attack Speed (I usually build her this way + Tiamat for better farming)
- Tank (often based on dodge)
- Critical Strike (as hit with devastating blow can crit or not... ask 2 people and you will hear 2 different versions).

I play Ap, I get Mejai > Boots > Sheen > Deathfire > Lich Bane.

Deals way more damage than Ad, great Nuke.

There is no one path for poppy as she benefits from both, that is why my first major item is trinity force.

Go AD, it makes her ult better than AP.
Go for Sheen, Boots, Tri Force, then some high damage (like Inf Edge) and some AS (like Last Whisper) items and you will rock.
Flash + Exhaust is a killer combo (Flash, Charge, Ult, Devastation Blow, Exhaust when they flee + Paragon thingy).

I see a lot of people complaining to nerf her when I see AD Poppy's. I'm guessing that's your best bet.

Iam a fan of Ap poppy.
I just recently tested it (yesterday) and i just 2 shotted everything except for the tank.I would say that everyone should try it especially since both her devastating blow and heroic charge are magic, they benefit great from things like magic penetration.
I usually go for sorc shoes/haunting guise/sheen(lichbane) and depending on how well i do i go for mejais and a deathfire for people who mass hp. In that game i had around 300+ ap and a voidstaff too, so i was hitting for about 1000+ average with devastating blow only.
And to Feanor i cant agree that ad makes her ulti better since you dont have much time to trainattack someone with your autoattacks, it usually is just charge and dev. blow combo and like 3 autohits (just an example of course, depends on the situation). Okay what iam trying to say that ap is definetly a viable option and can be even more effective than ad in some situations.

It can be more effective, of course, but with AP you need the momentum to kill one champion effectively and fast, while if you go AD you are generally better in teamfights and pushing, so I like that part more.
