I don't think it's a real problem. The tips of the leaves often turn brown from wind damage, but they can also turn brown from fertilizer burn or overwatering. You may need to experiment a little with your watering system to see if that makes a difference. Of course you won't know until the new leaves developing now mature. Hope you figure out the cause!
