Theres nothing wrong with chloride. Just that much would be out of style. I like the chloride high on malt focused beers like stouts and Scottish beers. The thing you want to pay attention too is the sulfate to chloride ratio.
More sulfate will provide a bit more bitter beer yes, but thats what you want for an APA, or let me re-phrase that....thats what the style calls for. If thats not what you want, then thats why youre a homebrewer, make it how you want!
FWIW my recommendation of a 2:1 SO4/Cl2 ratio will provide you with a slightly more bitter beer, but not much. My IPA recipe is 7:1, and its not uncommon to go higher than that.
