I used the 105's and Ultegras and have read that you use those "small clicks between gears" up front to trim. For example, when you are on the small chainring and start getting into a smaller cog on the rear, you might hear some chain contact with the front derailleur...you can then push the front shifter in one small click to trim it up and get rid of that noise without having to shift to the large chainring. Vice versa for the large chainring and larger cogs (you would bump it down one small click to trim it up).
