If you want any of that honey flavor or aroma to come through, add it after you have cooled your wort to about 85 degrees F. Otherwise, when you boil it all the flavor and aroma will boil out. The honey will completely ferment out anyway but at least with the first method some of it flavor and aroma will show through.
