In most cases QDPT calculations are plagued by intruders so that

the difference up to several Hartrees could be expected while

comparing computations with and without ISA shift.

The difference of 0.1 eV is in general acceptable and likely

indicates that there are no significant intruder states-related

problems in your calculations.
