I plan on brewing a Strong Ale using Wyeast #1318. Is it necessary to try and achieve the water profile for London using mineral additions? I'm extract brewing this time, but in general, is this necessary?

No, it's not necessary. Water profile is sometimes important for all-grain brewing, but for extract you're OK as long as your water is drinkable.
