We are assuming that you are using accurate figures from a reputable site such as HMNAO. We do recommend that you add 5 minutes to the sunset times which are obtained as there are genuine reasons for it as explained below

We add extra time since the calculated methods may or may not take refraction into consideration.

The Sunnah would've observed the actual sunset, this would've automatically taken refraction into its time, thus it would've been already added to calculated times.
