Nah, in competition a hops haze won't hurt the score. Appearance is only 3 points anyway, and even if it did get a 2/3 instead of a 3/3, that really wouldn't hurt the score. A hops haze is not unexpected in an IIPA, and generally the score would not go down because of it even though clarity is desirable.
