Thank you for sharing your profile with us! :-)
I compared your settings with my everyday profile. Therefore I opened it in a text editor. That way I don't have to gues what of your settings Cura is hiding. At first I printed https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3496376. I'll add pictures of the print to this posting. There are settings I love, I don't love and some I'm uncertain about. Some thoughts:
Initial layer height: 0.24mm is a good idea. The print will stick very well to the bed and it will compensate an uneven bed a little bit. But you will get an elephant foot with this setting. Maybe it is possible to get rid of that with a negative initial layer horizontal expansion?
Ironing: I tried ironing in the past and I'm not sure if I like it. I mean visible lines on the top are usually not that bad. But your setting is good. Mayby I'll give it another try.
Fan: With standard part cooling shouldn't this be at 100%?
Infill: I love gyroid and use it when possible. My print unfortunatly has a visible infill on the top. Maybe this is because of the low fan settings.
Speed/Acceleration: This seems to be very very well balanced. The movements are smooth and even. The outer walls are much more evenly compared to my profile.
Flow: I calibrated e-steps and flow for my printer. Therefore I changed this to my detected 97%.
Temperature: As you already wrote the settings are way to high for normal PLA. I started with 215°C/60°C and lowered to 210°C/50°C after the first layer.
Retraction: Usually I have 3mm at 25mm/s. This print was made with your retraction settings.
Z-Hop: Without z-hop I get scars on the top. With PLA and decent retraction settings I usually don't get stringing. So there shouldn't be a reason to turn off z-hop. Or am I missing something?
