    So, I'm reading the Instrument Flying Handbook and come to/skip the helo section. Then got to wondering if there are related questions on the written.

    So, should I go back and read it?

    When I took the instrument written for fixed wings in 2015, I don't recall seeing any helicopter specific questions on the exam.

    I took my instrument written in November 2017. No helo questions.

    If you’re taking the instrument written- airplane, than there won’t be any helicopter related questions.

    Yes, you only need the helicopter questions if you're going for either the helicopter rating or the Instrument Ground Instructor exam.
