If you want to do late addition and wind up with similar bitterness, reduce the bittering hops until you wind up with ~35-45 IBU in your (pre-top-up) wort.
I misunderstood, carry on!

No prob

Honestly, all my brews so far have been late-extract addition, and I haven't adjusted the bittering hops on any of them. They've all been bittered with low-AA% hops, though, so it didn't make a huge difference.

Yeah, I just had to double-check your logic. It's been so long since I've done partial boils that my mind was a little foggy on the particulars. In referring to Palmer's extract brewing section in Brewing Classic Styles, splitting the extract in half (or approximately half) and using all the hops according to the recipe will keep you at the appropriate IBU level for the style/recipe.

When you go to full volume boils, then bittering adjustments are necessary. Things get a little wonky.
