Personally I wouldn't do it. It won't help with penetration hardly at all and it just lowers the already terrible fire chance even more.

At lower tiers it helps some, but by around tier 7 it's diminishing returns. At tier 10 it's worthless.

I looked into this last night. At least for higher tier DDs, 127 mm IFHE only helps in penetrating the fore and aft bows of cruisers. With only a couple of exceptions, everything else is either too thick for even IFHE to penetrate or can be penetrated by HE alone.
