Would shooting in the morning and evening help alleviate that?
I suppose so.. But you also get the better light when shooting at that time. Though I don't know how good it is overall during summer as the sun changes and I've only spotted there in winter.
Morning and evening will be terrible at Imperial Hill over the summer. Everything will be backlit. Your best bet for the summer is probably around 2-3 PM
, but no matter when you go, the light's not going to be great.

Probably my primary concern is security. How tolerant are they of photographers in those areas? Secondly, is the area safe for me to have my camera out? In that regard, are there usually other spotters around? I'd feel better around other spotters as opposed to alone.
For Imperial Hill and the In'n'Out, you have nothing to worry about. There are almost always spotters/photographers at those locations, and they are well known and accepted for spotting/photographing. No hassles at all. Can't speak for the Proud Bird, but if you want to photograph from their property, you'll probably have to eat there.
said, it's very dependent on what you want to see. I'm usually over at the In'n'Out in the late afternoon/evening, and for arrivals I typically
see Virgin 346, Lufthansa 346, ANA 772, Air China 77W, Air Canada RJ
, Westjet 73G, Delta 330. Additionally, I sometimes
744, China Cargo 77F, China Airlines Cargo 744F, EVA 77W, Turkish 77W, United 772, ANZ
I'm not so familiar with the departures, but I was at Dockweiler beach last week in the afternoon, and caught AF
380, and ANZ 77W all departing from the north side.
Arrivals can definitely change, depending on whether they land on the north side or south side. I'd guess departures are more consistent, but I don't really know.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
