I am reading about the Grand Prix attack and the main lines of development for black, one line considered is as follow:

enter image description here

After white castling, I read, the black best moves are Nf6 or Ne7 after e6.

As beginner I want to ask: due to the fact that the idea behind the Grand Prix attack is to attack the king side of black, is queen side castling a line to consider for black?

    Don't forget that one of Black's main idea is to attack on the queenside, which could be problematic with a Black king on b8 or c8 – David Sep 28 at 7:09

I play it to avoid 'normal' sicilian lines.

When possible I do attack often on the Kside.

OTOH your example line is not one that gives me a lot of problems. What causes me more problems as white is fighting for an early d5 by black and attacking on the Q side.

Yes some opponents have castled Qside as black which led to other type of play than a Kside attack by white.
