Dry indoor air, salt burn from fertilizer build up, or overwatering can all cause browning leaf tips. Cutting them off will remove them but wherever you cut you'll injure the leaf tissues and you'll get some dieback and more brown on the leaf. You can try misting your plant each day or setting it on a plastic drip tray with a layer of gravel in the bottom and a half inch of water covering the gravel. As the water evaporates it will increase humdity around the plant. Best wishes with your houseplant.
