Should I compleate the main quest before playing Dragonborn?

Is that the best way to do it in your opinion? Or will Dragonborn be too easy by then? If Solstiem is like it is in TES3 Morrowind it will be full of tough enimies. Is that the case in Dragonborn?

Dragonborn has some really tough enemies regardless of level, but I do think it's intended for higher-level characters. Completing the main quest first feels a bit more fitting, story-wise.

Nothing really changes if you do the MQ first, though, except some dialogue at the end.
Not changing this sig until Stephen Kings 'It' gets a proper movie adaption.

Entirely up to you. There is some unique dialogue if you finish the main quest but that's about it.

Just a heads up, you may have a difficult time with some of the enemies if you are a low level. The game forces you to solo at times and if you aren't prepared for it you get stomped pretty hard.

what is then? you can beat the game's main quest at a fairly low level and at a very high level.
also yes, the enemies can be tough

i had trouble with some enemies on a level 74 character

Well I started a new character and I am only lvl 8, so I think I'll have to level up a bit more by the sounds of things haha.

I just got the horn quest from the graybeards and by the time I got back to whiterun I was lvl 10, got the Drgbrn trigger event, and headed to solstheim. It isn't quite as easy as the first time I went with my lvl 75 Dunmer, but more fun.

I wouldn't try it till mid-20's, at the very least.

Yeah, there are some tougher enemies in Dragonborn. As others have said in some areas you will have to go solo too.

Makes more sense to finish main quest, gives a little but more oomph to Miraak.

You beat Alduin and are the saviour of Nirn......oh wait who's this...the FIRST Dragonborn and he's evil!?
Getting stronger to fight Alduin, who's this dude? Why don't you kill Alduin you idiot, no Nirn left to rule if Alduin get his way.
I was born of your dreams. If you believe in me... ...there is nothing I cannot do
