Meyer lemon trees tend to bloom nearly all year around and you can have partially to fully developed fruit on the tree and see new flowers developing so there's really no pruning time that's really opportune. Go ahead and prune your tree at any time, knowing that any flowers you prune off will be sacrificial, but the overall health of your tree will be enhanced by the pruning.
