There was no such thing as fusible when I started sewing and I have used it very little. Having just applied some to the neck facings of a dress I wonder what most people do? Just forget about grading when you trim? Or pick it apart and grade, which is what I did.
Remember that old ad., "if you had graded the edges, Grandma, the facing would lie flat" ?

When I use fusible interfacing, I trim away most of the seam allowance on the fusible before applying it to the fabric. This gets rid of some of the bulk in the seam allowance.
