Are you penalized if you are neutral alignment?

If I don't make choices that are always light side or always dark side, will I be penalized in the endgame? Is it better to choose a side and align with it?

A lot (all?) of the relics you get before level 50 have an alignment requirement, the higher the level of the relic, the higher the alignment requirement is. The best relics at level 50 do not have an alignment requirement. Other than that, your alignment doesn't seem to make much difference (especially if you turn off Sith corruption).

There is some gear that requires a light or a dark-side alignment.

However, the end-game gear progression (Columi, Rakata, Campaign, Dread Guard) isn't restricted by alignment.

I haven't had any problems with my mostly Neutral IA.

Oh true, I forgot about some of the lightsabers having alignment requirements as well. But those you can get around by using an earlier lightsaber and swapping out the mods.
