Default Innate Attack: Projectile and Handedness

if I have a magic user (using GURPS Magic Rules) and I am casting fireball, I understand that I roll against my Fireball spell skill to cast and Innate Attack: Projectile skill to actually direct it to a target.

Is this Innate Attack skill affected by off hand penalties at all?

I notice that the Flame Jet skill uses Innate Attack and specifies that off-hand penalties apply, but Innate attack in B201 does not mention anything like this (even for Beam).

Just seeking clarification.

Thanks in advance.
Two things that I learned from Dungeons & Dragons is that I LOVE GURPS and it isn't really a compliment when a gnome tells you your hair smells nice.

Handedness penalties normally apply to attack rolls unless specifically exempted. Situations where you would even want to cast a missile into your off hand are pretty rare, too.
