Yes. You want the beer to be done and relatively clean before adding the AE.
The AE will break down the complex sugars that can't be done by yeast. Assume the yeast works its way down to 1.006 and stops. The rest is unfermentable dextrines or complex sugars. The AE breaks down the residuals so that it ferment all the way to 1.000.
It will be dry and very crisp, no adjunct tastes will exist like corn that is so common in cream ales.
