If both are used for different reasons shouldn't you use both?

No, it won't hurt you in any way that I'm aware of. The only real 'problem' with doing it in both is having to maintain both. But having both is good. The alt tag is required and is for text if the image won't display or while it is loading, and the title is good if the user hover's over the image and you want to explain more. They serve different purposes (even though IE combines them into the alt tag, as other browsers used to), so using both is no different than using both an ID and a Class attribute.
