I add mine right away and haven't had any issues. With that said, I don't know if that is the right thing to do or not.

It won't harm your plants, in fact it'll help them. Plants require nitrogen to grow, the general nitrogen source for plants is nitrates. It is actually easier for the plants to use nitrogen in the ammonia form, they will love it. It will also help your cycle, depending on the number of plants you have.
