Default Pale ale question

Am brewing Midwest Irish Red Ale, and the instructions are to add LME after steeping grains, then bring to boil and add hops. This is different than my other beers that recommended bringing to a boil after steeping, remove from heat and add LME/DME. Any reason for the difference?

You can do it both ways but the reasoning behind removing from heat when adding the LME/DME is to avoid scorching.

I understand the scorching prevention, but the thing that puzzled me was the previous recipes you steeped, then brought to boil, pulled off burner and stirred in the LME/DME. This one had me add LME after steeping, THEN bring to a boil.

It may have something to do with color. I don't think it would be a problem either way you do it. My suggestion is to do what has worked for you in the past.
