Default 6 weeks

Is 6 weeks to long for beer to be in primary. My recipe calls for 1-2 weeks primary 2-4 secondary and I was thinking of skipping secondary.

Nope not too long......actually leaving it in the primary is safer.

I would just do 3-4 weeks primary, 6 would be fine but I don't know if there's anything to gain

You only need to give things time if they're not quite right. If you don't have off-flavors and you don't have a big and/or complex beer that needs time to meld the flavors, waiting longer doesn't really get you much. Irish blonde should be great to bottle at 3 weeks.
