3x 2 is the Japanese 127 set up. The American style guns are 3x 1.

Just keep using the guns you're most comfortable with.

I used the standard Japanese destroyer guns because I didn't have a Japanese commander with IFHE.  Since the patch I've played a handful of games with the 100mm and they are completely fine without IFHE.  The American ones still have the best gun handling but they have by far the worst actual damaging ability now.  Only use them if you can't live with either of the Japanese 3 x 2 turret styles handling characteristics.

I've been using the Harekaze to train up a new captain for the post-Akizuki line. Since IFHE will be important, and since I've got that captain skill, I've been running the 100s since the most recent patch. It's a monster, though you still don't want to get into knife fights.

I was using the 3x2 IJN 127mm guns until the 1/4 pen change. Now I'm using the 3x2 IJN 100mm guns and training my HSF 7pt captain for Akizuki. You also get almost twice the AA DPS from the 100mm guns as the 3x1 US 1127mm guns, if planes are your nemesis.

I had a 19pt IFHE captain on my Akizuki that I shared with Harekaze but since the change I respec'd and moved him to my newly acquired shima. Without the need for IFHE I can place a lower skill captain from my reserve on Akizuki and still be very competitive. 

I run Harekaze with TRB and that does a lot better with a torp focused build. I'm very happy, it plays like a Yugumo but with better guns. Definitely keeping the 100's. I run her with my Yugumo captain. Superintendent is great with TRB DDs.

On a side note Harekaze is my first ship with a million XP! :D Taught me how to play high tier DD.

The 100mm IJN guns for the DDs now have 1/4 pen. So without IFHE you can pen 24mm of armor. With IFHE you can pen 32mm of armor.

Since the last patch I respecced into BFT and AR, getting rid of IFHE and trying that out. Fire chance is at 7%,; she is a monster. RNG not my friend, had 268 hits in a game last night, no fires

With the 1/4 pen think you can do other builds

There's almost no reason not to use the B hull (100mm) guns now. 

Unless you want faster traverse speed, in which case, use the 3x1 127mm C Hull.
