Default Modifying a recipe with fruit

I want to make a blueberry stout (as my second batch of beer), and Morebeer has a really good price on an all-extract Milk Stout. Could it be as simple as using that kit and adding some (4 lbs) of blueberries to the boil?

I would add blueberries to secondary, pre-frozen and thawed so you can extract the most out of them. BE CAREFUL though, i haven't had a single blueberry beer that i've like. The sugars will ferment out and leave it with a tart flavor. I would also purchase blueberry extract and at bottling add little by little to get the desired flavor.
Primary: Nothing
Secondary: DFH Punkin Ale
Bottled/Conditioning: Cigar City Jai Alai IPA Clone, Apple Jack 1.0, Apple Jack 2.0
Drinking: Yakima Blonde (Imperialized), Banana Wheat, Russian Imperial Stout, and anything i can get my hands on
On Deck: Watermelon Wheat, Red Panda Ale, Gluten Free Brown Ale, Mojito IPA, Smoked Pepper Stout
