Probably be OK but I'd certainly leave a lot more than that at the bottom considering whatever floor covering you are using.

Its almost inevitable whatever you do that unless you spend a lot of time getting the door casing exactly right that you'll end up trimming the door a little. That shouldn't concern you as its easier to make the dor fit the case than the other way round.
