Default Dryhopping (pellets) to Completely Full secondary

If using a secondary, most would recommend filling it to the neck. When it comes to dryhopping in a secondary with pellets with a carboy that is completely full (1/4" below the airlock), would you remove a few oz of beer before dumping in the hops? I'm sure I could switch from a stopper to a carboy cap at dryhopping and gain a little extra volume.

I've had to use a baster to pull out beer to add 3-4oz of gelatin/water mixture in the past.
