If the money owed to IRS is for the 2017 tax year, there is no interest if paid in full by April 17, 2018 (the due date of the return).

I think it is good to pay a little early to make sure it is timely paid and no interest will be charged. If you pay in April, pay a few days before the April 17th to be safe.
