I have experienced any clouding when planting a new tank. Especially with dirt, stuff just grows. You might get a little algae if you aren't heavily planted, but nothing harmful.
I would just sift all the dirt, cup one fish, dirt and cap the tank, plant, fill, acclimate the fish, and reintroduce the fish. As long as you are transferring your filter over, and you keep an eye on water params, you should be fine.
