Should i calibrate imu offset to base_link?

Recently, i am trying to use imu. I have seen some excellent algorithms which aim to resolve calibration of imu and calculate the orientation of imu. But i still have one question that if i install an imu chip on robot, it should have a relative offset and orientation to base_link frame. Where can i get this offset? Through directly measurement (which i think would be inaccurate) or through some other calibration method?
