Is one permitted to skip the bracha of yotzer ohr and recite it after SE, in order to daven SE with the tzibbur? I have not seen it brought down anywhere that one may, or should do this, but I don’t see what is so terrible about it. Certainly, there is no prohibition against blessing yotzer ohr after SE if one did not bless before, assuming that it is still before zman tefilla.
Moreover, we find that a person who is davening very early should skip yotzer ohr, and recite it after davening.
There is no such thing as skipping yotzer ohr, even if it will cause you to daven after the tzibbur. The Shulchan Aruch and Mishna Berurah say it specifically.
