Not at all. A little extra iron never hurt anyone
The way I look at it is all of the loose rust is cleaned off before I fill the HLT with 15+ gallons of water. The amount of iron actually dissolved into the water will be negligible.
It hasn't affected the flavor of my brews as far as I can tell, either. I've done everything from a 2SRM ginger ale to an Imperial Porter on this system.
YMMV, of course
