Im working on a jacket in a medium weight wool. I'm adding in a bust dart in order to accommodate a 2.5" FBA. This leaves a LOT of bulk behind the dart once it's sewn. This will be a lined jacket - is it ok to trim off the excess after I sew the dart in order to reduce the bulk?

Yes this is how it is usually done. Trim the excess, press the dart open and catch stich the edges to the body of the jacket
