I used to only fish dries. For at least a decade I used to look down on indicators, labeling them as easy. Honestly, in my opinion, it's easier to fish a dryfly in most scenarios. You can see exactly what your fly is doing at all times. When I started using indicators, I was surprised how hard it is to get a drag free drift. More mending is required to accommodate micro-currents. It is tricky as hell someplace like Rufus Woods, where to reach the fish wading requires a long cast to reach the current seam, but the current between you and it is going the opposite direction as the current you're casting to.
