In 2011, the climbing season was already winding down by mid August. Notably less climbers than before, the Huascarán refuge had closed, and many porters went away to work elsewhere. Assuming that that's normal, I would suggest going earlier, if at all possible. Otherwise, by the time you are sufficiently acclimatized to tackle the big peaks, your options will be limited, especially when it comes to meeting fellow climbers.
From what I understood about the climate, late in the season there would be a bigger chance of rain or snow, and there is a greater likelihood of strong winds high in the mountains. Nothing dramatic yet in September, and I would still expect the weather to be fine most days, so there will probably still be plenty of opportunities to go climbing. But with much less climbers around, you may find that you have to join a guided group or hire a private guide for everything that you don't want to climb solo. Or convince a friend to travel to Peru with you.
