does it make sense to eat more on days you workout then on days when you dont?
I usually eat 3110cals, and since I want to gain weight im going to throw it up to 3500..
But i was jw since I workout 3 days aweek now(coming off injury), If i should only eat 3500cals on days when I workout or do cardio. Then on the rest just eat 3110?

its not so much kcal as it is macros. your macros should be diff on days you dont lift (b/c of PWO and PPWO of course) try not to focus on how many kcal, but rather what the kcal consist of

with 3500cals im getting ~120-130g fat, ~400 carbs, ~250+ protein and ~40g sugar
eigher way Im getting my needed protein
BTW most of my carb/protein intake comes post workout

My days on usually have more overall KCALS because of the post-workout offerings.
I simply can utilize more nutrients in that span of time than that same span of time w/no anaerobic activity.
