Budding basil?

I have some basil plants indoor that are under flourescent light. I have them on a timer that gives them about 16 hours of light per day. It looks like they're about to flower, I see clusters of small leaves with hairs on them.

Is there anything wrong with budding basil? I know some plants once they grow seeds you cant use them anymore, if so, should I change the light hours?
