I've never been a fan of those offset fittings. They send up a big red "DIY" flag to me, just like factory-made EMT ells that they sell in the big box stores.
You say that like it's a bad thing.
We get lots of people pulling homeowner's permits, so those fittings, ells, etc. make it easier for the homeowner to do his/her own work (perfectly legal here, with a permit, and they live in the house). If it meets code, we approve it. Doesn't meet code, we don't, same as any other permit pulled by an EC.
