Should I build for full secondaries on my Georgia?

Currently I am running a mix of an accuracy and secondary build on my Georgia and my secondary range is 9.4 km. Do you guys think it's worth it to go all in with the skills (manual, aft, ifhe) and get the range to 11.3 km?

One of the best things about Georgia is you don't need to take Manual Secondaries to have effective ranged fire.  Georgia has a baked-in dispersion bonus which mean with only AFT and the range mod she'll be reliably hitting targets out at 11.3km.

Unlike the German BBs, Georgia will never do a lot of raw damage with secondaries to anything but DDs so it's debatable whether it's worth going all in on secondaries.  I think most people run a standard survivability build + AFT on her, as it gives most of the advantages of the secondaries (free fires!), while keeping you resistant to HE spam from enemy cruisers.

Which is great when you are farming secondary hits and find an enemy CV ;)

Sure, go find one of the new German Tier10 carriers... or even the GrafZ... they got nothing to defend against those secondaries. Nope. Nothing.

I enjoy it full secondary. You gotta pay attention though, if you want to be as effective as you can. Prioritizing your targets, both main battery and secondaries. Understanding when you can push and when you need to kite. The speed on it is so powerful (but can get you in trouble if you overextend badly).

Only do secondaries build on the Georgia for the lols. 

If you're in brawling range, you're in losing half your HP pool to citadels range. It's not tanky like the Germans and it's not agile. It's an American drag car. Goes fast. Die a virgin.
