Advice on moving toilet 1 to 2 inches

I am remodeling my bathroom and the toilet is not centered. I would like to move it a inch or two. I was told a offset flange might be what I am looking for but I was also told that I can expect a lot of clogging.with a offset flange. Anyone have any experience with a offset flange? Just to note I am replacing the old toilet with a bidet toilet so there will be little toilet paper going down the drain. Also my old flange is cast iron.. I could leave it the way it is but since I am redoing the bathroom it would be nice have it as perfect as possible.

Offset flanges have a reduced diameter vertically to minimize the added space vertically to install, so there can be flow problems. If the drain pipe is accessible from below, the drain pipe can be replumbed to new location. If you are remodeling, can the floor be removed to accomplish the same. Working with cast iron plumbing is not a DIY job. I would cut the cast iron pipe and use a transition piece like a Fernco and replumb with DWV PVC.
