It is a good idea to do it before the lights come on but consistency is the key.
not trying to start an argument, but if were dosing EI which is basically an over dose of ferts why would it matter what time we put the ferts in? if you were lets say 6 hours late putting ferts in there should still be plenty in there from 2 days before?

It does not matter.

The only time if could matter is if the time between doses is very long, say more than 3-4 days etc..........maybe a week or two for some nutrients..........

Or if you ran the nutrients at a semi limiting or a limiting level where if you missed a few doses, your plants would slow and not grow as much, stunt etc......

A way around that would be to use nutrient rich sediments, they are loaded and offer a good back up.
