comment How to address an EC2 instance from both inside and outside datacenter?
@MichaelHampton - Ah right, I've overlooked that Alexandr is planning to use his own A record indeed (rather than a CNAME for the AWS one for example); in this case your suggestion is obviously spot on regarding the desirable routing and cost benefits implied when using the internal IP address where possible, sorry for the sloppy assessment of the question at hand.

comment How to address an EC2 instance from both inside and outside datacenter?
@AlexandrKurilin - I slightly disagree with Michael's suggestion: you could/should just use the new DNS record both internally and externally due to a little known, but nonetheless quite helpful feature of the AWS DNS infrastructure, see Public IP Addresses and External DNS Hostnames: We resolve an external DNS hostname to the public IP address of the instance outside the network of the instance, and to the private IP address of the instance from within the network of the instance.
