If it makes no difference, then OK to open a Roth and make a 2011 contribution without any further interaction with the IRS.

You are not required to claim the retirement savings credit, even if you qualify for it. So if it makes a difference, but the difference is so small that it's not worth the bother of amending, you're fine to leave it alone.
