Default Finishing hops vs cool down time

I wondered today after using my new homemade 50ft wort chiller for the first time if anybody adjusts the final hop addition time. What I mean is now those hops are in there for less than 30min vs my old ice bath method of 1 to 2 hours.

No adjustment, it makes little difference after the boil is over and the wort is starting to cool. The late additions for flavor and aroma have already imparted their contribution and won't contribute much more during cooling. Dry hopping is another story.
