Playing on insane with regular xp bonus

How is it?

I remember the original IWD was particularly brutal on insane, but with all the new stuff the EE has added it seems the original balance has been completely wrecked. I was thinking of playing on insane while checking the No Difficulty Bonus-XP option, but i'm wondering if it may be too much. Anybody tried it?

    The no-xp-bonus no-extra-damage Insane run is my standard run.

    You'll face a lot of extra enemies, but that's it. It becomes harder, but the challenge makes the game better IMHO.

    Samesies. This, in my opinion, is the best all-around IWD experience.

    Ever since I learned that playing on Insane gives more experience, every single playthrough I've done has been either on Insane or Heart of Fury, with the extra experience. I like getting lots of experience.

    With a weak enough party (e.g. a solo assassin, or a sorcerer with non-mixmaxed spell choices), it's possible to make the game challenging despite the large experience gain.
