    at any time

    Dear teachers! I found this sentence on the internet and am a bit confused about it.

    "If you would like to meet me, I can come to London at any time during the next two weeks."

    If normally goes without would, but I think here it is used to express politeness, right? However, the second sentence seems wrong to me. Shouldn't the author have said: I can come ot London any time during the next two weeks. Am I right?
