It depends on what your goal is.
Here's an a'ea'e that I wanted to move the growing point so I let it dry first. Just to be clear I removed it from the cortex and central cylinder so I could use those parts for macropropagation.
Basically I only dry if what I'm doing is going to take an excessive amount of time.
