Useful Leningrad or Useless?

Is it good to play the Leningrad dutch ?

I loved that opening in past a lot wins against titled players online in blitz.

But is it cool to play it in classical 

I think in past I had issue in h4 line. 

Is it possible for us to avoid that line?

All suggestions are welcome. I love the leningrad but need some support.

Hi Abhi! 
Leningrad is ok but not great.
To avoid h4, you can play 1...f5 2...Nf6 3...d6 instead of g6.

Thanks you so much .I am just trying to learn new openings ideas.

 I think ideas matters instead of variations

I normally focus on piece placement, key squares, key files, important pawn levers, impo pawn structures, impo endgame positions etc of any opening which I play, 

I also love to see latest or classics of that opeings
