I can't contrive any scenario which would lead the Prince of Dol Amroth to travel further than the distance to his nation's capital, in order to fight a less-important battle than the one happening in the Pelennor.
I'm watching a map of the lands controlled by Gondor, and it seems to be Dol Amroth lay west for Gondor and very close to Rohan. But you're right, it wouldn's sound logical for Imrahil to take his army to fight in foreign lands than saving Gondor itself.
