What is ideal debt/equity ratio?

The ideal debt to equity ratio is 2:1. This means that at no given point of time should the debt be more than twice the equity because it becomes riskier to pay back and hence there is a fear of bankruptcy. 

However, it is difficult to put a mark of ideal ratio since, the type, nature, and size of every business and industry is different.
