Do you ask us whether you should like it or not?

Technically, yes, you're overextracting and it should become bitter. You'd be watering it down by adding hot water.
However, 5g are too few for even a ristretto in general, so just do what tastes good to you.

so i get a much smoother taste from the default longo and thought that i may be missing out...

As far as I know, the "lungos" are 5g too.

5g = water pressure being passed through?

When I had a Nespresso machine, I roughly aimed for a ristretto (i.e. 30-35ml). But that didn't do the job for me either which is why I sold it.
