IMHO, if one or more of those bugs were release-critical, you should
fix those in the very first upload or your upload could be rejected.
Just put a note in the debian/changelog. Less serious bugs that have not
been fixed can be re-opened after the upload has been accepted. It may
also be worth commenting on which bugs have been fixed in the ITA,
prior to your upload.
