Does this make sense?

So I had some good miles this weekend and noticed something about how I'm riding the bike.. First, here is my bike specs:
54cm SL4 Roubaix Stack 564, Reach 380 (548mm TT), I currently have a +17* 90mm stem and Spec Hover bars (something like a 2.5cm rise), so I currently have a pretty upright set-up. Seat height at ~68cm

So what I noticed riding this weekend is that I was spending a lot of time in the drops vs. the hoods, especially on my 20 mile ride today. I can ride on the hoods, but just feel more comfy in the drops.. so it got me thinking two things:

1. I can probably lower my bars some?
2. I need a shorter reach? I say this as I know if I lower my bars, the effective reach to the hoods gets longer and I feel the hoods may be a bit longer than I prefer now..

I know you can't do a fit over the net, but would love to know your all's thoughts..
