I don't have an answer, but here is a paper which partially addresses
that question.

HI David,
  i want to know how can i neutralize by adding ions prior to
submission to MD run using the implicit solvation model in NAMD 2.8.
Do i need to solvate first then neutralize by ions addition then
remove the water molecules and submit to the MD run using the implicit
solvent model or this implicit solvation model can handle the
unneutralized (charged)protein.
